Chelsea put eight past hapless Villa

CHRISTMAS STUFFING:Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert said that everything that could go wrong went wrong for his side at Stamford Bridge on Sunday

Reuters, LONDON

Stamford Bridge has not been a happy hunting ground for Villa, who were hammered 7-1 there in 2010.

Lambert said Sunday’s defeat would sting his side into action and he was looking for a response when they host sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow.

“You always learn when you win, lose or draw. That will be a wake-up call for us,” he said.

“We only have two days to mull over it but we have to go again against Tottenham on Wednesday. I am sure whoever plays on Wednesday will atone for that,” the Scot said.
