Fulham captain Brian McBride says fellow American Eddie Johnson is good enough to cut it in the Premiership.

McBride said: "The addition of Eddie (Johnson) has given us some pace that can hopefully create some more space in the middle of the field, while defensively we are much more solid.

"Eddie's adapting to the players very well and getting an understanding of where his team-mates want the ball to be played and where he wants the ball.

"He has a lot of ability and the willingness to learn."
