Ruben Neves believes the Premier League Asia Trophy offers an important opportunity to showcase the values of England's top flight in China.
But he is also feeling a responsibility to be an ambassador for the league, and its principles both on and off the pitch.
"Every country sees the Premier League live. This is really good for us because we can show to the world our job and the way we play.
"Spreading the message of the Premier League and the work they do to help communities through football is really important because in some countries football is losing a little bit of what makes it beautiful.
"The Premier League works very hard on this, and I think it's really important for the league and for football outside England, because everyone looks at the Premier League as an example."

"I think it's beneficial to have competitive fixtures instead of friendlies, because if you are playing against good teams you can prepare yourself better to play in the competition," said Neves.
"We want to maintain that winning feeling. That's what motivates you for everything – to win. If we can win, even in pre-season, it will be perfect for us."
