Happy memories for Chim

Pascal Chimbonda needs little reminding of the last time he pulled on a Spurs shirt to face Arsenal.

"Yes, a great moment, a fantastic night," he smiled at the mention of the famous 5-1 Carling Cup semi-final, second leg victory at the Lane that took us to Wembley a year ago.

The defender is now back at the Lane after a brief stint at Sunderland and looking to play his part against the old enemy again in Sunday's big home derby.

"I know if we play well we can beat them, we have so many good players at the club," insisted Pascal, who has already faced the Gunners this season.

That was for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light back in October when Pascal recalled that the Black Cats' game plan worked perfectly - until the final seconds.

"We played well that day and and drew 1-1," he said.

"The plan was to defend well and try to score when we got a chance.

"We got the opportunity, scored that goal first and there were only a few minutes left but Arsenal equalised in the last minute and that was so disappointing.

"This will be different because we won't look to defend, we will want to show our football and if we play well we can win.

"If we can it will be so important for our league position and, of course, the fans. We know how much it means to them."
