Lee Young-Pyo has expressed his huge desire to finish on the winning side at around 3.15pm tomorrow.The full-back, recently restored to the team after a lengthy spell out following a knee injury, is sure that a first derby win since 1999 can be recorded at the Lane.
"We really, really want to win the game," said the South Korean international. "Since I have been here I have played against them five or six times without winning so it is definitely time for that to change in our home match.
"Arsenal are an organised team with young players and they know how to build up their play. They are a good team but, although it will not be easy, this time we can win," he continued, before adding that requests for tickets were high for the this encounter.
"Many of our fans have asked me about tickets! But his game sold out weeks ago as it is a big match, one of the biggest in the Premier League."
Meanwhile, Young-Pyo reflected on returning to the First Team fold after an injury he sustained against Sevilla in April.
"Sometimes it can be difficult, but the most important thing is to have the confidence and do your best. It is a relief to be back, for a professional it is hard to go for so long without training and playing.
"I feel good, I did my best to get back from injury as quickly as possible and everything is fine now."
