VVD: My qualities can always bring something extra, but as I said, the rest do it extremely well still. I think Joel Matip is a great defender, Dejan [Lovren] is very good defender, Joe Gomez is coming through the ranks, Ragnar Klavan obviously I know from back in Holland is doing very well too. I just want to work hard, show what I can bring, and if that’s enough to play every week.

VVD: You become a football player to play in these games, going up against the best players in the league. It’s going to be tough, but with the quality we have, I think we can make it an interesting game.
