Laudrup's side have lost just once in five visits to the capital this season - a 1-0 reverse at Tottenham - while picking up notable wins at Arsenal and Chelsea.

They return to the Emirates on Wednesday after the 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium and Laudrup hopes to capitalise on the absence of the injured Mikel Arteta and suspended Laurent Koscielny for the hosts.

"I like London, we have only lost to Tottenham there," he said.

"We have done really well there and it's also more than two months where we have only lost two games, and apart from those two the last defeat was to Manchester City, the Premier League champions, away.

"This gives us a lot of confidence which is important because when you make changes and people come in, they fit in and feel that confidence.

"I feel now that most of the squad feel they are an important part of the team."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
