On his forward colleague, he said: "Fernando is just special. It is amazing to score this many goals in his first season in England. He is getting them in the league and in Europe, he is doing a great job for the team.
"He will only get better and better. Other teams now are very worried by him, but you could see with the way he put away what was virtually only his one chance of the night just how dangerous he is.
"The rest of the players seem to think he will score in every game, and the way it is going, that is starting to happen."
