Derbyshire ready for Arsenal

Olympiakos striker Matt Derbyshire is determined to have a big Champions League game against Arsenal this week.The England U21 international told the Telegraph: "For me this is the best tournament in the world outside of the World Cup. I never thought I would play in it, so having the opportunity to do that this season, and in the coming years, well, that's a dream."We all watched the draw down at the training ground and I was doing a live interview with Greek television as it happened. I just knew we'd get an English club and it was great that Arsenal came out."Having been part of Mark Hughes' robust Blackburn team that famously got under Arsenal's skin (Cesc Fabregas's in particular), he is encouraging his team-mates to try and disrupt Arsene Wenger's side from playing in their fluid style."You've got to get among them," he said."We're away from home but if we sit behind the ball, they'll just pass it through us and round us. We've got to get at them from the first minute to the 90th, not let them pass it around. Everything they do, we have to stop them."
