Lambert Relieved After Victory

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert breathed a sigh of relief following his side’s 2-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.

Villa moved out of the drop zone with the victory to ease their relegation fears and Lambert says it was a massive move for the Midlands club.

Lambert said: "It's only great when you hear that whistle and you've won. It's the only good thing about it. The stress levels are ridiculous.

"It's hard to explain. You have to be in that position. Balls are going into your box. But once it's finished it's great you have won. You just have to see it through.

"It's a huge win for us. We have been in positions of being goals up in a right few games.

"If we had taken more points from those, we'd be comfortably in mid-table. But the pleasing thing is we have hopefully broken the camel's back with that."

Lambert was particularly proud of the performance from Charles N’Zogbia who netted Villa’s second with a brilliant free-kick.

"The free-kick was world-class, an absolute world-class goal. He's got that in him. He's a really talented footballer,” Lambert added.

"To be fair, over the last couple of months, Charles has been excellent. He was unlucky because he had a bad injury with his knee.”
