Premier League

Arsenal Midfield Machine Names The 'Crazy' Match He Has Played In England

Arsenal new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga has described last Saturday's game against Burnley at the Turf Moor as the welcoming match in the English Premier League for him since moving from Belgian side Anderlecht.

The 21 year old was introduced as a substitute in the 1-0 win on Saturday, where he described the match as a crazy game since the Burnley players were playing crosses from everywhere which he was not used to.

Lokonga reveals that he had been told about the real Premier League and typical English way of play, which was physical and he added that he was not expecting that kind of football.

" It was a crazy game! They cross from everywhere and I was not used to it. People told me ' you're going to see the real Premier League, typical English way to play'. I was expecting not expecting this kind of play, man it was physical and they can cross from anywhere of the field."

The Gunners will be hosting London rivals Tottenham Hotspur next weekend, and the Belgian international is keen to secure a starting spot in the North London derby.
