Tottenham striker Gylfi Sigurdsson is keeping calm ahead of his side's north London derby on Sunday.
The Spurs forward has been a witness to the club's huge summer spending spree and is quietly confident ahead of the first big game of the season.
Theo Walcott recently taunted the White Hart Lane club by stating that his side were still better than Spurs regardless of the summer activity at the club, and the lack of it at the Emirates. But according to the London Evening Standard, Sigurdsson is staying ice-cool over the comments.
"That's his opinion, but we will see at the end of the season which squad is stronger," said the former Reading man.
Tottenham will have maximum points should they win on Sunday, taking them top of the League, depending on Liverpool's result against Manchester United, and Sigurdsson knows this is a great opportunity.
"I think you can say that this is a chance to lay down a marker. At the end of the season you always look back on where you dropped points or maybe turned a draw into a win. This is a six-pointer even though it's only the third league game of the season," he added.
Andre Villas Boas' side are yet to concede a goal so far this season having won every game, and the Icelandic international knows this is important.
"We have won four matches in a row overall and that's a good way to go into a north London derby," said Sigurdsson.
Arsenal have found a vein of form since their opening day defeat to Aston Villa and the Spurs number 22 is wary of this improvement.
"We will have to raise our level because they have been playing very well in the last few games and did well against Fulham and Fenerbahce as well, but we know what we're up against," he concluded.
