He's still only 24, but the Premier League is already the third European top-tier division in which Granit Xhaka has played.
The Swiss international has established himself as a key component in our midfield since arriving from Borussia Monchengladbach last summer – and he was always confident he would thrive here.
"I play in an aggressive style and I think I am suited to football in England," Xhaka said. "I think every player needs time to adjust to a new league, a new country and new team-mates.
“At the back end of last season I already felt good and I am feeling more comfortable now and want to help the team as much as I can this season as well.
"I am not a player who likes to talk about himself but I think I have shown since I have been here that I am someone who likes having the ball, dictating the play, looking for my team-mates.
"I'm what we call a 'six' in Germany, a quite aggressive, deep-lying playmaker."
