AVTV reaction: Lambert/Vlaar discuss frustrating Stoke defeat

Paul Lambert and Ron Vlaar were on hand to speak AVTV following the disappointing defeat to Stoke.

Watch the post-match interviews now.

Lambert felt Villa's performance "wasn't like us" after his team failed to build on the wins over Norwich and Chelsea.

The manager was pleased with the start to the game but felt the home side's energy levels dropped after taking the lead.

He also delivered an update on Andreas Weimann and Karim El Ahmadi, who were forced off with injuries during the first half.

Vlaar discussed the frustration in the dressing room following the loss to Mark Hughes' team.

The skipper talked about the need to cut out costly mistakes like the ones that led to Stoke's first-half goals.
