Torres once again failed to find the net, missing a golden chance in the second half when he poked wide from eight yards out, but Lambert believes the Spanish striker is still a top-class player, despite going 15 games without a goal.
"I think people get on the bandwagon with Torres because he was outstanding today. He gets a lot of knocks because he is misfiring but he is still a hell of a player," said the Canaries boss.
Meanwhile, Lambert was delighted with his side's result against one of the Premier League's top teams.
"We were up against a team that is really first class. We were really resilient and I thought we deserved to get something out of it," he added.
"Where we have come from two years ago and we're competing against that.
"If we can keep doing what we are doing we will be OK."
Norwich currently sit ninth in the Premier League table.
