13 February 2013 11:28
After being named in the Europa League squad last week, new fans' favourite Moussa Sissoko is expected be involved against Metalist.

The 23-year-old Frenchman is happy with his start after his £1.8m switch from Toulouse, but he insists he is NOT a Hatem Ben Arfa stand-in.

Moussa Sissoko: "I've been filling in for Hatem Ben Arfa . but I am not a No 10.

"Let’s say I am an attacking central midfielder. I like to move, defend, attack. I do everything a bit.

"The centre is where I can bring the most to the team. On the side, it is much more complicated.

“It has gone off smoothly.

“I have had a lot of fun.

“When I was a kid I was very impressed by Arsenal with all their Frenchmen.

"Robert Pires, Sylvain Wiltord, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. I loved Vieira as we played in the same position.

He radiated such power.”
