Tottenham new boy Soldado excited ahead of Arsenal derby

Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado is eagerly anticipating this weekend's North London with Arsenal.

The Spaniard, who has scored four goals in three outings for Spurs since his £26million move from Valencia, says he has been prepared for the heated contest by his new teammates and admits he cannot wait for the encounter.

"Yes, my team-mates have told me what the derby means," he said.

"Tottenham against Arsenal is one of the most beautiful games for the club and everyone who has come in from outside will want to play in it.

"It's the game with the biggest rivalry for Tottenham and I cannot wait to play in this environment and I hope we can get the three points.

"It's always important to score goals and I hope to keep on doing this for the team.

"The welcome I have got since my presentation here in the friendly against Espanyol has been great. To hear the fans singing your name is special and I hope it happens a lot more throughout the season."
