Gael Clichy is confident Arsenal pal Sol Campbell can handle tonight's return to Tottenham.

Clichy believes the 35-year-old will rise above it all and prove once again that he belongs at the top level.

"Yes, he can cope with it," Clichy told Arsenal.com at a Premier League Places For Players event.

"Everyone was doubting about his comeback, he is a 30-something and people doubted about the way he would perform. But I think since he came back he has shown he is still there [at the top level].

"Of course he cannot play every three days but when he has been asked to play he has done his job and the fact he is going back to White Hart Lane won't give him any trouble. He will be the same as ever."
