Elche manager Fran Escriba praises Villarreal for their strong start to the season.

Elche manager Fran Escriba has praised the performances of fellow newly-promoted outfit Villarreal this season.

The pair, who were both promoted to La Liga from the Segunda Division last season, clash in the league this evening.

"It's not a surprise to see Villarreal having a good season," he told reporters at a press conference. "Villarreal have a good squad and have also done well in the transfer market.

"They've kept the same coach and the same block of players from last season. I think it's normal to see them so high in the table."

The Yellow Submarine currently sit fourth in the division, while Elche are 13th.
