Swansea's on-loan defender Steve Caulker is hoping to make both his current and parent club happy this weekend by heaping more misery on Arsenal.

The England Under-21 international is on a season-long loan from the Gunners' fierce local rivals Tottenham, with the Swans set to visit the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The North London side are still reeling from their 8-2 thrashing at Old Trafford last time out and Caulker would love to pick up a famous victory.

He has told that confidence remains high at the Premier League newcomers, despite failing to score in their first three games.

"There will still be that bit of rivalry for me come Saturday at the Emirates and I'm sure their fans will know about it," said Caulker.

"It is a massive game for us and we'd like to open our scoring account for the season if possible.

"They've brought some good players in over the past week, so it won't be easy, but everyone is looking forward to it.

"We won't be going there to give our respect, but we will try to get the ball down and show what we can do with it."


Caulker has been particularly pleased with Swansea's defensive performances so far this season and believes they can think about more than simply surviving relegation this term.

"We've got two clean sheets from the first three games, so that is a huge positive to take from our start to the season, especially with me being part of the defence," he said.

"We also managed to hold off Manchester City for around an hour, so defensively we are delighted with our start and we know that the goals will come eventually.

"We've got enough talent both up front and throughout the side to give teams a run for their money this year.

"I'm more than confident that we won't just stay up, but have an impact on the Premier League as well."
