ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa lose their eleventh game in twenty three Premier League matches and have now failed to score in fourteen.

Since the start of 2013-14 Paul Lambert had led Villa to thirty one defeats in sixty one League matches.

Of his total of 113 games in charge, Lambert had lost 54.

As a result Lambert breaks new records of failure as for the first time in Villaโ€™s history they have now failed to score in six consecutive league games.

Meanwhile, their tally of 11 league goals scored this season was the lowest in the top nine tiers of English footballโ€™s pyramid of 649 teams.

Villa had gone eight Premier League games without a win and scored only once in that sequence.

Lambertโ€™s Villa had secured 12 points from a possible 57, scoring just 7 goals in those 19 matches whilst conceding 29.

The 0-5 reverse at Arsenal was Villaโ€™s biggest defeat since the 0-8 loss at Chelsea in the Premier League on 23 December 2012 - which is the heaviest league defeat in their history - and was also masterminded by Lambert.

In moderately less depressing news, winger Scott Sinclair made his Villa debut aged 25 after joining from Manchester City on loan to the end of the season.
