Villa v Liverpool podcast: Lambert, Guzan and Weimann star

Paul Lambert, Brad Guzan and Andreas Weimann are the stars of this week's pre-match podcast.

In the company of host Jack Woodward, all three look ahead to the exciting Easter Sunday clash with Liverpool.



Lambert talks of his delight at the form and attitude of his players and calls for them to show more of the same this weekend.

He picks out the quality of Andreas Weimann and Brad Guzan on the eve of the Reds encounter.

Guzan tells us he's happy with what he's doing in between the sticks but stresses the goal threat at the other end.

Weimann applauds the quality of "outstanding" Christian Benteke and says he really enjoys playing with him.

He keeps his thoughts simple, saying he wants to keep scoring goals and help creating them too.

Tony Morley also joins us and says he is really looking forward to the game and believes the team can build on back to back wins.

He believes that Liverpool losing last time out will mean they will be looking for a response.

Tony McAndrew looks forward to the NextGen Series climax in Lake Como, outlining the achievements of the lads in the competition so far.

Samir Carruthers praises the ability of winger Jack Grealish, while flying winger Grealish returns the compliment saying Carruthers is a really good skipper.

Last year's star Gary Gardner says Graham Burke is a top quality finisher and emerging talent - and one to watch in the semi-finals and finals.

Gordon Cowans looks at the lessons learnt from the 2-2 draw with Everton ahead of Monday's clash with Sunderland.

The U21s coach wants the lads to start the game better and not rely on coming from behind.

Chief Executives of Acorns and Villa - David Strudley and Paul Faulkner - also express their thanks and delight at the fabulous Acorns Day fundraising figure announced on the eve of the big game.
