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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
