Beating Tottenham Hotspur clearly means a lot to Calum Chambers, as the Fulham loanee expressed in an interview ahead of his clash with Arsenal’s North London rivals.
Speaking to BBC Sport in a light-hearted interview ahead of the Fulham-Spurs game on Sunday, Calum Chambers answered a number of questions about himself, a couple in relation to the game.
When asked whether he’d prefer a day with Lionel Messi or a win over Tottenham, Chambers responded “beating Tottenham” without any hesitation.
Then, when offered his favourite chocolate cake, and asked to choose between a piece of cake and three points against Spurs, Chambers joked: “It’s my favourite cake, so… No. Three points, obviously. If we get three points I’ll eat that (the cake).”
Chambers has faced Tottenham with a number of clubs now, from Southampton to Arsenal, Middlesbrough and now Fulham. His record with the Gunners is very good, with one win and one draw so far. On loan, it’s been much worse, with three defeats out of three games.
Hopefully, this time things will be different. Chambers is on a good run in the Fulham team, playing as a defensive midfielder. He’s started nine of their last 11 league games, and one of the two he missed was against Arsenal when he was ineligible.
Clearly, Claudio Ranieri rates the 23-year-old highly. Good luck to them both on Sunday!
