Corluka: 'No fear'

Vedran Corluka is relishing his first north London derby and believes we will be going into tonight's clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium full of confidence.

The defender was solid in our 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers at The Lane on Sunday, and he believes we have nothing to fear when we face Arsene Wenger's side.

Vedran believes the first win of the season takes a massive weight off our shoulders and will enable the players to start enjoying their football again.

"Arsenal is our biggest game of the season, especially as far as the fans are concerned," he said, "so we just need to go into it with the right attitude and not be afraid.

"We're going to the Emirates with confidence, not wondering when we're going to win a game, and now it's up to us repeat the Bolton performance.

"The clean sheet was important after a few bad results, and also it was important to win the game."

The Croatian is also full of excitement at the beginning of Harry Redknapp's reign as manager.

"We have a new manager now and it's been a positive start for him, which everyone saw on the pitch on Sunday."
