“We let in some goals we could have avoided but we’ll work to ensure we don’t concede any more like that during the season. Fortunately we ended the game on a high.

“It was perhaps too early to celebrate [when I scored] because we didn’t know how the match was going to pan out.”

Despite his impressive start to life in the English top-flight, the 26-year-old said he still has to adapt to his new surroundings.

He added: “It was good.

“Obviously I’m still getting used to the English game, the positives and negatives, shall we say, but I’m learning. It’s interesting.

“Let’s say the referee tends to let play continue… and you only really understand that when you experience it.

“Not that it’s a positive or a negative, it’s just the way the game is and you get used to it. It’s nice.

“It is different to the French league but I knew that already. It’s up to me to adapt.”
