Tottenham Hotspur captain Ledley King has given Spurs a massive boost by revealing that he could start against bitter North London rivals Arsenal on Wednesday.
28-year-old King was able to play consecutive matches for the first time this season, with the England International starting against Udinese in the UEFA Cup on Thursday and then again in the 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
King, who has had his playing time restricted with a persistent knee injury is now targeting a third start in a row against the Gunners in the Premier League clash on Wednesday at the Emirates Stadium.
“I felt I could [play two games in succession]. Until you do it, you don't know, but now it's done, hopefully people will stop talking about it,” said King.
“It is important not to get carried away, and I am not about to try to play every game just yet. Will I be able to play at Arsenal on Wednesday? We'll see.”
