Jane Ross is loving life at Manchester City.
The Scotland international, who signed from Vittsjo GIK in November, netted her first goal for the Blues in Monday's thrilling victory over Arsenal and has earned deserved praise from her manager following a string of fine performances.
Having settled well into her new Club, the striker told mcfc.co.uk the move to the Academy Stadium has delivered everything she had hoped for.
Reflecting on Nick Cushing's words, she smiled: "It's always nice to get a compliment.
"I'm really enjoying my time here. I love playing for this Club with its fantastic facilities and I love being surrounded by top players and staff.
"I really like the English game too. It's very competitive, physical and of a really high standard."
Ross opened her City account by planting a header past Sari Van Veenendaal to break the deadlock against the Gunners.
The striker was naturally thrilled but insisted the victory was more important. She also explained such was the power behind Toni Duggan's cross, there was no time for her to think - she just had to react.
She laughed: "I don't really remember too much about it to be honest! The cross came in from Toni, who had done really well, and the next minute, the ball was in the back of the net!
"I'm delighted. First and foremost, it was great for us to get the three points - especially with such a good performance. Getting on the scoresheet was a welcome bonus!
"We knew it was an important game - every game is and we want three points from each one, but against a team like Arsenal, it was an especially huge win.
"We're so pleased to have maximum points from our league games."
City now switch their focus to the FA Cup with Sunday's visit of Premier League Northern Division side Sporting Club Albion.
Ross asserts the Blues will approach the quarter-final clash in the same way they would any other, as they bid to continue their march to Wembley.
"We take every game as it comes and we'll be looking to build on our performances, dominate the ball and go and win that match," she said.
