"Everyone looks forward to the big games and this is one of the biggest," he said. "In fact I would say it is the biggest game in this part of the season.
"At the moment Arsenal are playing good football and are top of the league. It would be nice if we could win the game and go above them.
"We are all aware it is a long season. You can already see how many teams are dropping points.
"It is too early to start talking about winning this one game giving us an advantage. But it would be nice to do it."
