Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert hails his side's 5-0 win away at Walsall as an excellent performance.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has praised his side for their "excellent" 5-0 pre-season friendly win against League One club Walsall.

Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor both scored in the emphatic win at the Bescot Stadium, which thoroughly pleased the Villa manager.

"It was excellent," Lambert told the club's official website. "We play a passing game and we're getting better and better. We definitely have goals in us, that's for sure.

"It was pleasing that we kept a clean sheet too. There are a few weeks to go and it's all about that Arsenal game."

The result means that Villa have now scored 10 goals in two consecutive away games, as Benteke bagged a hat-trick in Friday's 5-1 win against Crewe Alexandra.
