Watch Paul Lambert answer questions from the media in his pre-match press conference on AVTV.

Lambert sat down for his weekly press briefing ahead of the clash against Stoke City.

The Villa boss was asked how his young players will stand up to the Potters, who are renowned for their physical threat.

Other topics up for discussion were the return to fitness of Charles N'Zogbia, Brett Holman's form, Darren Bent and Lambert's decision to change to a 3-5-2 system at Queens Park Rangers.

The gaffer was also asked off-beat questions about this weekend's Manchester derby clash, the decision by Uefa to spread the Euro 2020 finals across different nations and the exploits of his former club Celtic in the Champions League.
