"If somebody had said 'I'll give you a point from Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea' I'd have taken that," the Sutton Coldfield Observer quotes Lambert as saying. "We took three points from Liverpool so it breaks the ice.

Villa are currently third in the Premier League table after five games, while Chelsea remain on top.
