The attacking midfielder swapped Amsterdam for Everton in the summer but has struggled to hold down a place in the Premier League sides first team since.

Klaassen said, ”I never expected to go to the Premier League and dominate every game. You have to get used to it and learn to adapt.

”We are having a difficult time lately. There is not a lot of stability and there are many changes and not much of a starting lineup and that is difficult.

”I do not notice much of a difference in training. Maybe that is because I have a Dutch manager. We do not train that much harder than I was used to at Ajax. There is definitely more attention on power training. I go to the gym more often here in England.

”I  feel at home here at Everton as I have done since day one and I am enjoying it here at the club. Only our results are disappointing of late.

”We have played a lot of difficult matches so far this season against the top clubs and it is not simply just a case of beating them.”
