Manuel Lanzini insists he is not feeling the pressure of attempting to fill the void left by Dimitri Payet at West Ham.
Lanzini has scored three goals and provided two assists since the France international’s departure from London Stadium.
“Well, I would not say I am feeling the pressure at the moment,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sports News HQ.
“Of course, Dimi was a very important player for us and we linked up very well on the pitch. He could help take the pressure off other players with the way he could create space and make things happen.
“But I am very comfortable with the way things are going at the moment and I feel that I am a very important part of the team, which is just what I wanted.”
