James Relishing Premiership Life

James Relishing Premiership Life

Midfielder Matty James has said he is relishing the 'Premier League gauntlet' and the challenges we will now face in the coming season, and he's confident we will have a good year.

Our Young Player of the Year in our Championship title winning season now can't wait to get started in what he hopes will be a successful beginning to a Premier League career for both him and the club as a whole.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the release of the fixtures yesterday, James explained.

'It's unbelievable really. You look at the teams we'll be up against and it's the stuff dreams are made of. As a professional, they're the games you want to be involved in and I'm really looking forward to it. I can't wait.'

Whilst there is some trepidation given the teams we face so quickly in the season, given we will be to a degree finding our feet still, James says that in some ways facing them early could well be a bonus for us for a number of reasons.

'Maybe playing Chelsea, Arsenal and United in the first five games will help us. There's nothing like playing the top sides to settle the nerves! They're the games we all want to play in. You can't be scared of them, it's what the Premier League is all about.'

Of course, all of those sides have a number of players on World Cup duty, so they will be given additional time off over the summer, so may not be in contention or properly match fit, and that could well be a bonus in itself for us.

Whatever happens, James knows there isn't an easy game in the league, so all they can do as players is 'go into every game believing you can win it, playing positively and trying to win' and given that's what we did last year, that attitude should see us through to what the season will be all about - avoiding relegation and anything over that will just be a boost.

'Hopefully we can cause a few upsets on the way.'
