Lambert praised the efforts of the players and supporters during the derby encounter.

The Villa boss felt his side were unlucky to fall behind to Long's effort.

He said the claret and blues did tremendously well to go again after a gruelling 120-minute cup tie at Manchester City on Tuesday.

Holman faced the cameras after another all-action performance in midfield.

The Aussie midfielder gave his thoughts on the clash, including the two efforts he went close with before the break.

Bennett was delighted to make his first appearance at Villa Park - and his inaugural top-flight start.

The left-back relished the derby day atmosphere.

Albrighton praised Villa's performance after making his first start of the campaign since returning from a foot injury.
