"The system at the minute is definitely suiting us," Lambert told
BBC Radio 5 live.
"Gabriel Agbonlahor, I think, is playing at the top of his game, Andreas Weimann has energy to burn and Benteke, I do not want to say he is the complete player because he is not, but he has been absolutely brilliant.
"His goal ratio is frightening from the national team to coming here, and he is leading the line exceptionally well."
Villa, who moved out of the Premier League bottom three thanks to Benteke's late goal against Reading on Tuesday, travel to bottom-placed Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
Lambert, 43, said: "If you look at the middle of the table and down, it is very, very tight. Another win can take you up there and that is what we are going to try and do.
"I have a young team that is doing well at the minute, and they are giving everything they have got. For me, that is the main thing and we keep going as a group."
