Lazio ace Hernanes is delighted with his form this season.

The Rome club are currently third in Serie A, four points behind joint-leaders Juventus and Napoli.

Hernanes said: "After two years here, I feel much more at ease, and now things come to me more naturally. During the first two seasons, I played in the centre of midfield, and that was a good thing because I learned a lot from that position.

"Now I am playing slightly behind the strikers, and I can do what I like. This way, I can assist goals and see a lot more of the ball."
