Arsenal fullback Sagna knows he faces test against Tottenham ace Bale

Arsenal fullback Bacary Sagna is ready for a challenging clash with Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Sagna knows that he will have his hands full when marking the 22-year-old, but says the secret to containing him is to deny him space.

"He is a very good player, he was PFA Player of the Year last year and he deserved it," Sagna told Arsenal Player.

"He is a great player, but every weekend we play against great wingers. He is extremely quick, that's why you have to stay close and make sure he does not come quickly at you."
