 Team Report
Next Match: at home to Swansea, December 28

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits his side have to improve after going down to a 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace. Palace stole the points at the death when Dwight Gayle scored, meaning Villa have now lost four games in a row and no team in the Premier League has a worse home record. They have scored only six goals in nine home games, all of which have come after half-time. Lambert said: "The home form isn't good enough and lack of goals is contributing to not winning games. We have to stand up and be counted and try to go on that front foot. We have to create more when we have most of the ball. "It was very tight. Crystal Palace got it right, they defended well and they defended deep. We needed that creativity or a goal to go in."
