• Blog: How should Villa play United?

Villa could be the victims in the Theatre of Dream of a United chasing their 20th league title, a win over Lambert's side ensuring another crown for the Red Devils.

But with the club sitting just three points above the drop zone, Monday's fixture could be just as decisive for Villa.

However, Lambert said the players are refusing to buckle under the twin pressures of playing the champions elect with the fear of relegation chasing them should they lose.

Instead, 43-year-old is preparing to take the attack to United.

"We're going to give it a right good go," Lambert told the Daily Star. "We want United to know they have been in a game.

"We don't look like a team that is under threat.

"The momentum we have built up will help us and they won't be nervous about playing United on their own patch.

"We played well at The Emirates and at Anfield so I don't think they will be nervy."
