Moussa Sissoko believes the Premier League is made for him after the French midfielder inspired Newcastle United to successive victories in his first week at the club.

The 23-year-old provided the assist for Papiss Cissé’s strike in a 2-1 win at Aston Villa last Tuesday before he scored twice in a 3-2 victory over Chelsea at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Sissoko penned a six-and-a-half-year deal with the Magpies after completing his move to Alan Pardew’s side from Toulouse in January, and Sissoko is already enjoying life in England’s top flight.

“Toulouse are a good team with quality players but going forward sometimes we experienced difficulties,” Sissoko told L’Equipe.

“English football is made for me. I’ve thought that for a while. I know I will often be in a position to score, just like last weekend.

“It is the same in the France team. I feel better and better. At first, I didn’t dare to take risks – I just did control and pass. Nowadays if I have to dribble, I do it.”

Sissoko scored 24 goals in 218 appearances for Toulouse, while the midfielder has represented France on five occasions.
