West Ham midfielder Felipe Anderson feels well suited to Premier League

West Ham midfielder Felipe Anderson feels well suited to the Premier League.

Anderson has impressed since his arrival from Lazio.

He told BBC Sport: "I have always enjoyed dribbling. That has been a key part of my game and you do get quite a lot of space in England. But the game is very intense and it is difficult to keep it up for the 90 minutes.

"Every game is end to end, with attack after attack. I am still adapting to that side of the game and I need to get stronger."

He also stated: "The Premier League is the best league in the world, and it is very well regarded if you get a chance to play in it. I was very motivated from day one to repay the belief the club has shown in me. I have worked very hard to settle in quickly and am enjoying being part of the team, being in the city and taking part in such a project."
