Lambert's side are sitting just above the drop zone after presiding over the club's worst start to a season in 43 years.

The 1-1 draw with Lambert's former club Norwich on Saturday left Villa with just one win from their opening nine games in the Premier League.

However, Lambert is not worried about the prospect of his side dropping out of the Premier League.

When asked about the prospect of Aston Villa being relegated, Lambert said: "They won't. There is a squad of players there I think can do it.

"We will stick together and keep driving it on. I trust the team, I trust the players to try and get results. It always hurts when you don't win. I just have this belief everything will be fine."

Lerner backing

Lambert also insisted he has the backing of Villa owner Randy Lerner despite their struggles this season.

"I speak with the chairman all the time. We have a good relationship," added Lambert.

"He's very supportive. I don't have any problems there.

"He's behind the project we have here."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
