Norwich manager Paul Lambert is not getting carried away despite his side's impressive start to the season.

Norwich manager Paul Lambert says the club's focus is still on survival despite their impressive start to life in the Premier League.

Goals from Leon Barnett and Steve Morison gave the Canaries a 2-1 victory over Sunderland tonight, a result which sees them climb to 9th in the table.

Lambert was pleased with his team's performance, but was wary about setting the side's ambitions too high.

"I was delighted with the lads and the way we played. We were a bit nervy towards the end but I thought the general play was excellent.

"We'll do everything we can to stay in the league, I think that's first and foremost. I think everybody will tell you the same. I think Brendan will tell you that at Swansea and Neil will tell you the same at QPR."

Norwich face a difficult away trip on Saturday when they travel to Old Trafford to play champions Manchester United.
