After defeat to Arsenal, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is confident his side can stay in the Premier League this season, reports BBC
The Midlands club went another game without scoring, meaning it’s been over 600 minutes without a goal in the Premier League. They were comprehensively beating 5-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, and after going behind eight minutes in didn’t look capable of ever threatening a comeback.
Despite enduring the worst defeat of their season which drags them closer to the relegation zone, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert still isn’t fearing the club’s Premier League status, and remains adamant the Claret & Blues can have enough to remain in the top-flight – while hinting they may need to spend still on deadline day.
“We have definitely got enough to stay up. If we can do one or two signings then we will try. I am looking for anybody who can improve the side. You have to keep working hard in training and hopefully it turns around,” he said.
Aston Villa started the season strongly, finding themselves in a lofty 2nd place early on in the campaign, but results have since taken a turn for the worst, and they are now in a familiar position just a few points above relegation. The lack of goals will be a real worry, let alone their winless run, as they have some vital games coming up.
