Paul Lambert remained humble in victory after Aston Villa booked their place in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup with a 4-1 win at old club Norwich on Tuesday night.

Lambert received a mixed welcome as he walked out at Carrow Road, but the former Canaries boss, who is in dispute with his old employers after an acrimonious departure during the summer, saw substitute Andreas Weimann hit a second-half brace to turn the tie around after Brent Holman had cancelled out Steve Morison's opener.

Christian Benteke cracked in a fourth during stoppage time to move Villa within 180 minutes of Wembley. Lambert said: "I thought we were excellent for the whole game. We have been playing like that since the Sunderland game, but I am delighted, I really am."
