Fulham midfielder Alexey Smertin is delighted with his goal scoring start to the season.
"I'm very happy. After playing for Charlton I decided to go back to Russia to settle down with my family but I was disappointed with the level in the Russian Premiership. Compared to English football it's not the same - even though there are many good Russian players.
"I would love to finish my career at Fulham. It's a good team and I feel very comfortable here and I'm very happy. I would love to get into Europe but I know it's difficult because the Premier League is getting better and better every season and it's less predictable."
