Iago Aspas: Enjoying life on Merseyside

Aspas is still to score for his new club and recognises English football is far more physical than what he has been used to in Spain - but would still recommend it to other footballers.

"I would tell any player to go to the Premier League," he said. "You get a different feeling, especially compared to Spain.

"It's the first time I've left home so that's been hard, but things are going well. I'm very happy, especially because we are leading the league. It's only been three games though, and it's a very long competition.

"I'm playing a bit further back than I did at Celta, but over there you need to run a bit more because it's a bit more physically. That's the biggest difference from the Spanish league, which is more based on technique.

"So far, I've only played three games there and I haven't visited all the stadiums, so it'd be difficult for me to say which of the two is the better league. At the end of the season, I can answer that question."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
