Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos is determined to seize his chance when Kolo Toure goes on international duty with Ivory Coast.

"It could be a big opportunity for me to go in there and show what I can do," said the Switzerland defender.

"I believe I've already shown what I'm capable of but this could be a big chance to come into the team for a while.

"It would be a good time to come in as well - we are playing great football, winning games, and I'm ready for the challenge."
