"It's a very tough league and every team has their own style," he explained to the Liverpool matchday programme ahead of the Southampton clash. "I have never played in games such as the ones against Stoke and Everton before.

"That is probably the thing that has surprised me most but also makes me happy because it's a very tough league and every team has its own story."
