Iago Aspas believes Liverpool are second in the Premier League on merit after an impressive start to the season.

The Reds are a mere two points behind top-flight leaders Arsenal after a 4-0 rout against Fulham at Anfield in their last league outing.

And Aspas, who joined the Reds from Celta Vigo in the summer, believes there is greater equality between clubs in the Premier League than Spain’s La Liga.

“My impression is very good,” Aspas said.

“You just have to look at the table to see how well the team is working. We are pressuring and playing well. This league is totally different from the Spanish league and there is greater equality between teams.”

Meanwhile, Aspas, who sealed a £6.7m move to Liverpool in July, reiterated his desire to improve once he returns from an injury.

“Not playing is frustrating, but I can take advantage of this stoppage, and try to get back to playing as soon as possible,” Aspas told Liverpool’s website.

“I think I can improve; I am happy with the team’s level but not so much individually because I think I can do a lot better.

“First I want to recover from my injury and afterwards I can use my qualities better and exploit them better as a centre-forward.

“I have been injured for four weeks, but I have been training for four or five days on the pitch – running and exercising. I am a lot better.

“Soon I will be able to kick the ball. In 10 days to two weeks I will be ready to play.”
