Newcastle new boy Sissoko feeling right at home in England

Moussa Sissoko admits he already feels comfortable in the Premier League following his remarkable beginning at Newcastle United.

The 23-year old French midfielder, who joined from Toulouse late last month, produced a perfect cross for Papiss Cisse to score on debut before backing that up with a match-winning double against Chelsea at home last weekend and he puts it down to immediately adapting to an attacking gamestyle like he does in the French national team.

"Toulouse are a good team with quality players but going forward sometimes we experienced difficulties," Sissoko told L'Equipe.

"English football is made for me. I've thought that for a while. I know I will often be in a position to score, just like last weekend.

"It is the same in the France team. I feel better and better. At first, I didn't dare to take risks - I just did control and pass. Nowadays if I have to dribble, I do it."
