The playmaker, who has made two cameo substitute appearances in the defeats against West Ham and Manchester City since his move from Heerenveen, believes his new side will begin to pick up points if they continue playing in the same vein.

The 23-year-old Norwegian said that he is fulfilling his dream by playing against the top teams of the Premier League.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I'm really enjoying playing in the Premier League, it's been a dream of mine my whole life and hopefully I can contribute even more in the coming games.

"That's what you want to be doing as a footballer, you want to be playing against players like those at Manchester City because then you know where you're at and what you need to work on.

When asked about Saturday's defeat against Manchester City, Eikrem said: "After a while we started creating something - we had belief and chances ourselves which are always hard to come by against Manchester City.

"After our equaliser, despite them taking the lead again I felt that we were a bit on top of them and looked like possibly getting the score to 2-2 in the second half. Then they scored of course and it became a different game."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
