Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon admits he has found it tough adapting to life in the Premier League and hopes to start cutting out the mistakes.

The 18-year-old was key in helping the Cottagers to win promotion from the Championship last term as he netted 16 goals and laid on eight assists.

Reports suggested that Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United were considering a move for Sessegnon over the summer but Fulham refused to let him depart.

Sessegnon is yet to show his full potential in the Premier League as Fulham, who are priced at 1.50 to be relegated, sit at the bottom of the table after just one win all season.

The versatile left-sided player admits the top flight has proven harder than he expected but insists he is ready to rise to the challenge and hopes to settle in as the campaign progresses.

Sessegnon said: “It’s been very challenging but at the same time that challenge has been good for me.

“Of course I wanted to do a bit better by this stage in terms of performances. I don’t think I’ve been near my best in certain games.

“I look at all the mistakes I’ve made before I watch my good stuff. If I have misplaced a pass, I want to know why I’ve done that or whether I could have looked at a different pass.

For me, I just look at it that I’m young and I can only improve.

“It’s still early in the season and it was never going to be the same as the Championship. I’m not trying to put too much pressure on myself. I’m just trying to work hard and be the best that I can.”
