Feghouli coming to terms with the Premier League

Sitting in row D at Watford we had a good view of Sofiane Feghouli. He was up against a giant defence, but encouragingly he seems to be adapting to the physical demands of the Premier League. He was always involved on the right flank, won several free kicks and looked up for a battle, even when he was getting kicked. One encouraging moment in the first half saw him win the ball back against his full back and then cross for Snodgrass to get in a shot that was blocked. The French-born Algerian was labelled "the new Zidane" when he was a youngster at Grenoble. He's clearly not as good as Zidane and his control can still let him down, but since the departure of Payet there's been a steady improvement with two goals and an assist for Lanzini's second against WBA. Feghouli is a player who thrives on confidence and is starting to look like he believes he belongs in the Premier League

Agreed, he's improving for sure

And with Snodgrass wanted and Antonio banned he'll have to play v Chelsea

Snoddy fought the law and the law won!
