Aston Villa's Ashley Westwood is keen to improve next season and thanked manager Paul Lambert for aiding his development.
Westwood joined Villa from Crewe last summer and managed 36 appearances in all competitions last season.
The 23-year-old midfielder believes he can get even better under Lambert's guidance and revealed the Scot has managed to instil a sense of belief in the Villa dressing room.
"I have improved massively as a player since being here. I can't undersell that point," he told the club's official website.
"But the gaffer has given me masses of belief. He gives you the confidence to go out and play and that's served me well in some big games.
"Coming from League One, you naturally think it's a big jump playing against the likes of Man Utd and Man City. They do have top-quality players - brilliant players - but you have to remember they are human and believe in your own ability.
"My aim now is to keep on improving under the gaffer. You have to keep striving. One thing I am certain of is that I can develop here."
