Paul Lambert: 'Aston Villa have nothing to lose at Chelsea'

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes that his side have "nothing to lose" when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes that there is no pressure on his team's shoulders ahead of this Saturday's clash against Chelsea.

The Midlands outfit managed to seal a 1-0 win over Liverpool earlier this month, but will head to Stamford Bridge on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.

"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.

"The result at Anfield gives you a free reign really, that's what people have got to remember. We'll go [to Stamford Bridge] with nothing to lose. Nobody expects anything from us going there, but if we get chances hopefully we can take them."

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