Liverpool right-back Alvaro Arbeloa admitted that life in the Premiership is a far-cry from the La Liga, and struggled adapting to life in England when he made his move just over a year ago from Deportivo La Coruna.

"At the start, it took me a while to adapt to English life, with respect to the Premier League, I also had to work quite hard because the style and rhythm is different to the Spanish league," said the improving Spaniard to Kop-TV. "Moreover, to arrive in the winter transfer market also makes things a little more complicated, now I am very well settled in the team and enjoying it at Liverpool.

"You never know where you will end up as a player, but right now I am very happy in my team and I want to continue here for a long time," added the right-back.
