Benoit seeks perfect week

Benoit Assou-Ekotto tells Sunday's official programme that he's determined to make it a perfect week with a win against Liverpool.

That week started with the team coming from 2-0 down to record a first win at Arsenal in 17 years on Saturday and continued with a 3-0 win against Werder Bremen on Wednesday to secure a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Now it's Liverpool at the Lane - and a fixture that brings back happy memories for Benoit, who smashed home his first and only goal for us against the Reds in a 2-1 win last season.

"It's another difficult game for us," said Benoit. "Liverpool want to return to the top four. We took their place and they want it back!

"They have some very good players but for some reason they did not have a good start to the season.

"We certainly won't have a comfortable game like we did on Wednesday, especially with players like Fernando Torres on the pitch, although Steven Gerrard is out and I know he is a very big player for Liverpool.

"But I'm confident we can continue our good week with a good result."
