Nastasi Or Lescott?

Matija Nastasic is proud to have ousted Joleon Lescott from the team's starting line-up in his debut season with the Premier League champions
Matija Nastasic: "I'm very proud of that because Joleon is a great player.
"But it's not really important who plays as long as the team does well. I'm very happy about the way I have adapted to English football and everything is going well for me at the moment.
"But I didn't expect it to come so soon - certainly not in the first six months. I noticed in the first couple of games that I could settle in and play, and that gave me confidence.
"My first two games gave me confidence to play because I noticed that I could cope with the Premier League.
"It's certainly a different league than Serie A in Italy. It's also very difficult to play there, but I'm happy here in English football.
"The main difference is that in Italy it's a very tactical game. Teams get a lot of players behind the ball. Here the games are more open and the challenges are stronger."
