MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought first half we were excellent. Last season that was a game we would have lost. Four points from six is a terrific start for us. โ€œI think a few years ago Aston Villa struggled with experienced players. Itโ€™s tough, the league is tough but the start we have been made has been really good. โ€œI think Cissokho was outstanding. Philippe Senderos has been brilliant and Alan Hutton has been outstanding. โ€œIโ€™ve not had one phone call from anybody as long as Iโ€™m here Ron Vlaar wonโ€™t be going anywhere. I know heโ€™s in his last year but he wonโ€™t be moving thatโ€™s for sure. โ€œWe had chances. I couldnโ€™t ask for any more effort. We still have Christian Benteke to come back. Iโ€™m delighted with the group I have got. I know for a fact we will be a threat for anyone.โ€ Revisionist historian Paul Lambert, Saturday, 23 August 2014.
