Paul Lambert insists that Aston Villa will improve their poor early season form in light of their worst start to a season in 43 years.

Saturday’s draw with Norwich City saw the Villa Park outfit’s record stretch to just one win in their opening nine Premier League games, leaving them just one place outside of the drop zone on six points from a possible 27.

When asked about the potential threat of relegation, Lambert told The Guardian: “They won’t. There is a squad of players there I think can do it (avoid relegation).

“We will stick together and keep driving it on,” he added.

“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.”

The Scot stressed that his job is not under threat despite Villa’s poor start, claiming that he has the full support of owner Randy Lerner and the board.

“I speak with the chairman all the time. We have a good relationship,” Lambert said.

“He’s very supportive. I don’t have any problems there. He’s behind the project we have here.”
