Ollie Watkins may have made the step up from League Two to the Championship look easy but the Brentford winger is still demanding more.
The summer signing from Exeter is his own biggest critic and would be more likely to be angry about one misplaced pass in a match where he has been practically perfect.
That signifies the character of the man, whose only aim is to become the best player in the world.
“If that ball was a bad pass and it went to their striker to have a big chance. I like to keep my standards high. I want to progress and be the best I can be,” he said.
“It's just the mentality of Ronaldo working hard and I like that. People want to be pro footballers but do they want to put the work in.
“The mindset I have is to work hard each day. If I aim for that, even if I fall short I'll be a good player. I don't want to have any regrets so I'll work hard each day and keep progressing.”
Watkins admitted that he has even been surprised by the way he has handled the step up and was unaware that he had been named in WhoScored's team of the month for September.
“I am quite surprised. I thought it'd have taken longer to adapt. I can see when I'm struggling in the game but that will come in time,” he added.
“I haven't seen many of those stats. I take each game as it comes but it's pleasing to hear and I want to keep that up for the rest of the season.”
One area that Watkins would want to improve is how he runs with the ball and getting his head up to make the perfect decision and rues the fact he has been unable to find Neal Maupay better.
He explained: “I like running with the ball and a few times I get caught out and it's learning when to run with the ball and when to get it and pass it.
“I'm still adapting and I'll try not to put too much pressure on myself.
“Neal is a great player with good movement. Sometimes when I've got the ball I haven't got my head up to find him.
“I feel I could have done better there. I feel I've got a good relationship with the players and hopefully the chemistry keeps building.”
