Norwegian international Mohamed Elyounoussi has been on top of his game at Celtic having scored seven goals in seven games but he insists that there is more to come according to Herald Scotland.
Elyounoussi who is currently on loan at Celtic from Premier League side Southampton believes that Neil Lennon has made a positive impact on the team and the side wants to repay his faith by putting on a great performance against Lazio in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday - hopefully, come away with a win.
“I think over the next few months I can get even better,” said the winger. “I think with the coaches we have here then I am confident I can get stronger. I came here to get some minutes and to try and help the team win some silverware.
“I am looking forward to going up against Lazio as it is a huge game for the club. I never used to watch Italian football or anything like that. I obviously know the big teams they have. Italian teams are always well organised and we saw that from Lazio at the game at Celtic Park.
"We have a good team though and we feel if we play as we did against Hibernian and Lazio in the first game, then we can cause them some problems. We think we can get all three points from this game.
“If we can get a positive result against Lazio then we will be in a strong position in the group. The manager will have to come up with the plan but I am sure he will come up with something to get the result we want.”
Elyounoussi also insisted that despite Celtic feeling confident ahead of their match, they should not underestimate the Serie A side and that the Hoops should their own game that will deliver immense pressure on the opposition.
“I think we should always look to try and play our own game and play with that high press and intensity,” he said. “I don’t think we should sit back and invite them to put pressure on us. We are more than capable of dictating the game over there. I think it shows how good we are that we just have to worry about our own game plan.
