Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool: Paul Lambert pleased with progress

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says he is happy with the progress his side are making despite a 1-0 home to Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge was the match-winner for Liverpool, but Reds keeper Simon Mignolet was in fine form to twice deny Villa's Christian Benteke.

Lambert adds that had he been offered three points from the opening three games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool at the start of the season, he "would have taken it".
