ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambert's Villa get respite from their severe problems in the League with a victory as surprising as it was welcome over Gareth Barry and James Milner's high flying Manchester City side. That the damage was done by players hitherto out of favour with Lambert added to the hope that a side more representative of the talents of the squad would soon be seen in the Premier League.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI am tired with this manager because I didnโ€™t say anything. โ€œI asked the fourth official if it was a yellow card without moving my hands. He [Lambert] comes up to me every time but after this some managers go to bigger stadiums and donโ€™t say anything. I am tired of this, very tired. โ€œI am tired with their behaviour and itโ€™s better that some managers shut up because I didnโ€™t speak with this manager. I asked the fourth official if it was a yellow card and I thought the referee had left his yellow cards in the dressing room.โ€ Roberto Mancini on Paul Lambert, Tuesday, 25 September 2012.
