Nigel Winterburn was at Emirates Stadium last week to promote the Fred Perry Table Tennis Urban Cup alongside Great Britain's Olympic medal hope, Darius Knight.

The legendary left back took on Knight at the table and then spoke to Arsenal TV Online about the sport he is rather more familiar with.

Nigel assessed Arsenal's title challenge - ahead of last weekend's dramatic Premier League results - and looked ahead to the Carling Cup Final against Birmingham at Wembley later this month.

He discussed:

  • Arsenal's title prospects
  • why there is no 'easy' run-in
  • a 'big season' for Arsène Wenger's team
  • the demand for instant success
  • why Arsenal can beat Barcelona
  • the danger of underestimating Birmingham
  • his memories of the 1988 League Cup Final

Subscribers can now watch this interview 'on demand' on Arsenal TV Online.
