Moyes urges Villa to be patient with Lambert
David Moyes believes Paul Lambert has "a big job on his hands" to revive Aston Villa and insists he needs time to turn things around.
Moyes saw his side triumph 3-1 at Villa Park on Saturday to maintain their 100% winning start to the campaign thanks to goals from Steven Pienaar, Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic.
The Merseysiders could have doubled their tally against a side who looked uncertain at the back and lacked a cutting edge until the final stages when Karim El Ahmadi netted a consolation effort.
He said: "It is going to be very hard. Paul is a young manager who has come to a big club and it is a bit like myself when I took over at Everton. You're not going to turn things around right away. It's going to take time. Paul's got a big job on his hands, which I'm sure he knows.
"No-one can come into any job, and especially one as big as this, and expect it to be correct right away. But the supporters were right behind him and were with the team.
"Probably the downside for Paul is he met a hot Everton team and that was probably a hard thing to take in your first game. We knew the crowd would be behind them and it would help if we could calm it down a bit and the first goal did that."
