And the Irish full-back added that the team are determined to show the Gunners what they are capable of after such a dismal afternoon at Highbury a month ago.
"It was disappointing up there," said Steve. "We didn't play well, went down to 10 men early and that changed everything.
"The lads are looking forward to this one. It's a tough game but if we win it it will put us right up there, so it's important for us.
"It wasn't the real us at Highbury and the last game or two hasn't really been either.
"We were brilliant against Leeds but the performances have dropped a bit.
"The lads know we can't have performances like that against a team of Arsenal's quality but they are raring to go and can't wait for it.
"It's a big game for them as well after getting beaten by United so it's a massive game for both clubs.
"I'm sure we can get a result. There's no reason we can't. We've done well against them at home and we do well against most of the top teams at White Hart Lane.
"We'll be hungry for it on Sunday."
Stephen Carr says the lads can't wait for Sunday's showdown against Arsenal at the Lane.
