Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has said that Ahmed Musa now understands the Premier League better following his brace against Everton in the FA Cup third round.
Musa, who was introduced just 10 minutes to the end of the first half of the encounter, scored his side’s first goal in the 66th and completed his brace five minutes later to hand his side a 2-1 win over the Toffees at the Goodison Park.

And according to Ranieri, Musa’s goals at Goodison Park can be attributed to the efforts he is putting in training.
Ranieri told Leicester Mercury: "It is important for Musa because I saw him in the last month and he is much better.
"Maybe he understands better the Premier League, the fight, and everything. He was a very good threat to Everton.
“It was similar to Jamie Vardy. Everybody was calmer when he attacked the space. It was good.
"Every league is different. In Italy, there is more tactical and the players must work so hard with the movement. Here you have to understand the spirit of the competition. Every ball is the last ball.
"He was used to playing in Russia. In Russia he scored a lot of goals because he was quicker than the other defenders. Here everyone is quick and strong. Now he is more confident and for me much better."
