Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is facing pressure to resign from supporters following Monday night's 2-0 defeat at QPR.

The result consigned Villa to an unwanted piece of history, as they became only the ninth club in Premier League history to lose five consecutive matches without scoring a goal.

Lambert's side have now shipped 13 goals without reply in five matches, and supporters have been venting their displeasure on Birmingham Mail's Facebook page.

Richard Hunt wrote "Lambert out, enough is enough," while Mark Pearson suggests Lambert has "had his time. He wasn't good enough."

Villa host Spurs on Sunday before travelling to high-flying West Ham the following weekend, where Liverpool and Man City have already fallen to defeats this season.
