Premier League campaign.

The Villians currently sit just one place and three points above the relegation zone having won just two of their opening eleven league games this season.

But the American goalkeeper believes he has seen enough to know Lambert has the ability to create “something special” at Villa Park.

He told Aston Villa’s official website: “I thought the performance against Manchester United was a good indicator of where we are heading. I think it is a sign of good things to come.

“We want to create something special and the manager wants to do that too. I feel the pieces of the jigsaw are starting to be put in place. It will take time but we are on the right road.

“We will continue to grow and build under the gaffer. We are improving all the time. We are starting to create an identity for ourselves as a team under the manager. It is exciting times ahead.”

But Guzan has made it clear that success under Lambert won’t happen instantly and that the whole team are looking forward to a future under the Scot.

“We know it is not going to happen overnight but, at the same time, we are really excited about what is going on,” he continued.

“It is about where the manager wants to take the club and how we get there. It looks really good.”
