Caulker eyeing Gunners win

Published Add your comment

Steve Caulker has set the ambitious task of defeating Arsenal when the sides face off this weekend, despite the Gunners being overwhelming favourites for the clash.

Arsenal are looking to come back from an 8-2 defeat to Manchester United before the international break. The north London side desperately need to get their season back on track to end their six season long trophyless run.

Swansea, meanwhile, had a sobering opening game in the Barclays Premier League, losing to Manchester City 4-0, but have been able to salvage two draws after from Wigan and Sunderland and want to establish themselves as stayers in the top-tier.

And Caulker, who is on loan at Swansea from Arsenal’s cross-town rivals Tottenham, revealed he’s looking forward to beating the Gunners on their own turf.

"There will still be that bit of rivalry for me come Saturday at the Emirates and I'm sure their fans will know about it," Caulker said.

"It is a massive game for us and we'd like to open our scoring account for the season if possible.


"They've brought some good players in over the past week, so it won't be easy, but everyone is looking forward to it.

"We won't be going there to give our respect, but we will try to get the ball down and show what we can do with it."

Caulker says the last two draws have given Swansea a lot of confidence, and the side now have the belief that they can conquer the big teams in the top-flight.

"We've got two clean sheets from the first three games, so that is a huge positive to take from our start to the season, especially with me being part of the defence," he said.

"We also managed to hold off Manchester City for around an hour, so defensively we are delighted with our start and we know that the goals will come eventually.

"We've got enough talent both up front and throughout the side to give teams a run for their money this year.

"I'm more than confident that we won't just stay up, but have an impact on the Premier League as well."
