Aston Villa striker Andreas Weimann has lavished praised on the club's youthful approach, stating it has made them stronger as a team.

Speaking to Sky Sports News after Villa's victory, the Austrian said: "the whole team, it showed on Saturday again, we are all in it together."

Villa showed their mettle by twice coming from behind to win 3-2 on Saturday. Initially, after Yaya Toure had opened the scoring for City, Villa responded with a goal from Karim El-Ahmadi.

City went back on top with a strike from Edin Dzeko just five minutes later but Leandro Bacuna responded with a goal in the 75th minute before Weimann settled the tie late on.

"We all want to be together and understand each other," said the 22-year-old.

"We are a young team of the same age and obviously it helps us. We have that attitude where we will go to the end and that showed on Saturday."

Villa's young team struggled last season and narrowly avoided relegation, but Lambert's tactics now seem to be paying dividends, as his side has gelled well since the start of the new campaign.

Weimann in particular has looked impressive in the absence of usual starter Christian Benteke, and will undoubtedly keep doing all he can to prove he deserves a starting berth.

His goal against City was his first of the season but he will be hoping to add to his tally in an effort to impress manager Paul Lambert.

Villa's next opponents are 7th placed Hull City, who are full of confidence after their 1-0 victory over West Ham.

Weimann is confident the Villans can secure three points, but knows the Hull will be no walkover.

"We are looking forward to Hull on Saturday and we will try and win it, they have come up and won a few games but we have done that and will try and take three points

"They will be full of confidence like us and hopefully it will be a good game with us coming out on top."
