Villa boss remaining optimistic over side’s survival chances.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has expressed his belief that his side will avoid relegation according to BBC Sport.
The Scotsman watched as his side went down to a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool this weekend but remained optimistic about his side’s chances of playing Premier League next year.
Lambert, who joined the club from Norwich City last summer, stated that he did not believe his side had played like a team in the bottom three, despite the result placing them back into the relegation zone after Wigan picked up three points following their 1-0 win over Norwich.
They are level with on points with Wigan but are in the bottom three on goal difference but more worryingly, the Latics have a game in hand on Paul Lambert’s men.
But there remains everything to play for as Southampton in 12th are only four points above Villa with seven games still left to play.
Villa’s loss against Liverpool was their 15th of the season, meaning they have already lost more than the 14games they lost last year.
But the club have one of the youngest squads in the league and will be hoping the experience they have gained this season will make them a stronger force for the next campaign.
