The winger, who has never needed much encouragement to be moody, has spoken to manager Lambert but not to complain.
He was given the nod on Saturday because of injury to Gabby Agbonlahor and said: "Everything is fine.
"There's a communication so there's a not a problem. I've been playing for many years so I know I'm not going to play every game.
"It's the manager's choice. I will wait and be ready to play."
