Matthew Lowton, right, netted early on as Aston Villa defeated Swansea 2-0

Goals from newcomers Matthew Lowton and Christian Benteke earned Aston Villa their first Barclays Premier League win under Paul Lambert - a 2-0 victory - and ended Swansea's unbeaten start to the campaign.

Right-back Lowton broke the deadlock with a 20-yard first-half volley and substitute Benteke wrapped up the points with two minutes left.

It was another encouraging performance from a new-look Villa side being assembled by Lambert after their 1-1 draw at Newcastle.
