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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
