West Ham midfielder Lanzini big fan of Everton ace Barkley: Why he's so good…


West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini admits he’s a big fan of Everton ace Ross Barkley.

The pair will face-off on Saturday in a crucial game for the Irons.

Lanzini told whifc.com: “Ronald Koeman has a good striker in Romelu Lukaku, who is an amazing player, but we also have very good players. The game is going to be a good one.

“They also have Ross Barkley, who is a very good player. I don’t think he is thinking about the pressure people are putting on him, because there was a lot of pressure on him last week and he played really well against Hull City.

“He has a good touch, good finishing and good recovery, so he is a very good player. I don’t think the pressure is a bad thing for him.

“Speaking personally, it’s not easy when the pressure is on you, but it’s not difficult either, because I like the pressure and the responsibility of the team and of the people to be on me. This is football and you need pressure for motivation.”
