Norwich midfielder Jonny Howson is determined to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground despite being compared to Andres Iniesta by Canaries boss Paul Lambert.

Many had worried Howson would struggle to make the step up from the npower Championship when he swapped Leeds for Norwich in January, but the 23-year-old has slotted straight in to Lambert's starting XI and opened his scoring account for the Norfolk club in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Everton.

After the game Lambert likened the youngster to Barca and Spain star Iniesta, but the midfielder knows his top-flight career is only in its infancy and is determined not to get carried away. He said: "It's obviously very nice when you hear comments like that, but it's just one game. It's not a case of getting carried away."
