Rose warned that it might be some time before they see the best of Lamela.
He said: “I hope people don’t expect too much from him too soon. We have to allow him to settle. Soldado has scored four times already and Etienne Capoue has looked very solid, so neither of those two has looked out of place.
“You look through the whole team and you see that you’ve got two strong players in each position and it’s great. We’ve got a very good squad.
“We’ve given ourselves a good platform and we’ll take it from there, although it’s too early to guess where we might finish. The aim is to finish in the top four.”
