Barcelona fullback Dani Alves full of praise for Cesc and Sanchez

Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves admits the players are delighted with the way they've started the season.

Summer signings Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez both scored in the win over Villarreal and Alves has been impressed by how quickly the Chile winger has settled at his new club.

"Cesc's adaptation is no surprise to us," he said. "He already knew how Barca operated, he'd been here a long time.

"Alexis is from another country and another league and it did surprise us a bit how well he's integrated into the team. He's a star and stars integrate into the squad quickly.

"Alexis is one of those players who has a lot of fun with his team-mates. He's very lively and spontaneous. We're all delighted with them both."
