- Aston Villa 0 - 1 Liverpool
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert feels the club are still "years away" from where they want to be - but has no doubt they are firmly heading in the right direction.
– ASTON VILLA MANAGER PAUL LAMBERT
We have not got the same resources as Liverpool - you look at the spending Liverpool can do compared to ourselves and we can't do that.
But what we have got is a great football club, a great fanbase behind us and we have a team that I think is proud to be here. I think that is vital for us.
We are still years away from where we want to get to, but we are certainly getting there.
It is still early, but we have got a lot of confidence at the minute.
The ones that were here last year have grown into it. They know what the league is like.
The new ones are now part of that and will grow into it.
