Sunderland winger Sessegnon feels comfortable at Premier League level

Sunderland winger Stephane Sessegnon insists he can handle the physical nature of the Premier League.

Sessegnon made defenders' life a nightmare with his physical play despite being just 5'6", and he feels his strength and power are ideally suited to the English top flight.

"It's true that I'm not very tall so I try to make the most of my size, and it's true that I am physically strong, so I try to play to my strengths with a lot energy, power and speed," he told safc.com.

"I think that can be an attribute in the Premier League as there is so much contact. In certain moments you need to be strong."
