Paul Lambert believes he must "never rest" in the battle to keep Norwich in the Barclays Premier League.
The Canaries have produced some determined displays on their return to the top flight for the first time since 2005 but suffered a second successive defeat when beaten 2-1 at home by Arsenal on Saturday, and the 42-year-old former Celtic midfielder is under no illusions of the challenges ahead.
Lambert was speaking at the Annual General Meeting of Norwich's shareholders, and said: "I look at the fixture list coming up and I think, 'Oh no, we've got Manchester City in a fortnight,' but that is the difference in the Premier [League]. Never in a million years did I think we would be in this position."
