Picture gallery: Match images from Villa clash at Stoke

Here's the selection of match pictures from Villa's 2-1 defeat to Stoke.

Paul Lambert's side looked to be heading for one point - and perhaps even three - when Libor Kozak cancelled out Charlie Adam's opener at the Britannia Stadium.

But former Villa hitman Peter Crouch won it for the Potters as Lambert now looks ahead to an important double festive header against Crystal Palace and Swansea in B6.
