Getting one over the Gunnersâ€™ north London rivals is what life is all about for Jenkinson.
He said: â€śIt means an awful lot to me. Itâ€™s a massive game and itâ€™s the first one I look for at the start of the season.
â€śAnd of course I am spreading the message throughout the dressing room about how important it is.
â€śI wouldnâ€™t miss it for the world as a fan or as a player.
â€śI have grown up supporting the club and I know what it means to the fans. The boys in the changing room need to be aware of what it means as well.
â€śBut I donâ€™t think it will be an issue. Weâ€™ll be up for it.â€ť
