MATCH SUMMARY

Villa are destroyed for the third consecutive game and have now conceded fifteen without scoring as Paul Lambert continues to plumb new depths without mitigation and with no reaction from an incompetent boardroom.

KEY MAN

ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambert's Villa conceded their thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth goal in the last three games without reply.

Villa had now lost ten of their twenty Premier League matches under Lambert conceding three or more goals on seven occasions as they fell to 17th in the table, one point above the relegation zone with a goal difference that was significantly worse than the three teams below them in the table.

The much maligned Alex McLeish whom Lambert had replaced had been summarily dismissed at the end of the previous season for presiding over fourteen Premier League defeats in a 38 game campaign, conceding three or more goals on four occasions.
