Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Mathew Ryan cannot wait to test himself against one of the Premier League’s top sides, as the Seagulls face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
Ryan insists that Albion will head into the game with confidence and be competitive on the day.
He said, "There's no doubt coming up against an established name like Arsenal, renowned throughout the whole world of football, is a nice game.
"But in my experience in big games, perhaps in the past when I was a little bit younger and less experienced, I would think I've got to do something out of the ordinary to match these guys.
"That's been a little bit of an error on my behalf in the past. You've just go to continue going out there and doing what you have done in order to put yourself in this position.
"I'm just going to do my best, let my instincts take over and contribute to the team as best I can.
“Hopefully we get a little bit of luck on the day, which always helps, and we can provide a tough game for them."
The Australian shot-stopper feels the side has improved since the start of the season, after jumping in at the deep end with a match against Manchester City.

"In that game and perhaps the Leicester one too, we were a little bit in awe of everything. There were a couple of moments where we were a little bit raw and inexperienced, but since then I've felt we've come along in leaps and bounds.
"Our understanding as a team is getting better and better and we feel like we are making a lot of progress.
