ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa arguably deliver their third great result in 54 games under his stewardship with this backs to the wall victory against an expensively assembled outfit. The win showed a hitherto absent steel in Lambert's side, doubly so given the team was troubled with injuries to key players. As a result the game proved a source of hope that it could kickstart form for Villa in a way their previous victories (over Liverpool in December 2012 and Arsenal on the opening day of this season) had not. Villa rose to 9th in the Premier League table after six games as they had now won three and lost three of their opening matches.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œPeople coming here probably would have thought Manchester City would have won comfortably but our performance was fantastic. โ€œI am absolutely proud of the players. We seem to be doing it the hard way, winning away and finding it difficult at home, but we were fantastic. โ€œWe are doing pretty fine at the minute. I donโ€™t put any pressure on the lads - just try and let them enjoy their football and try and win as many games as they can.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 28 September 2013.
