Philippe Senderos was the proud captain of Arsenal's gutsy Carling Cup side at Ewood Park on Tuesday night. The Swiss defender led by example as the young Gunners shrugged off a Blackburn fightback and Denilson's red card to snatch victory in extra time.

Afterwards Philippe spoke exclusively to Arsenal TV Online. He talked about:

  • why Arsenal deserved their victory
  • the character of the young players
  • the mental test of losing a two-goal lead
  • why he believed they could win with 10 men
  • the mental test of losing a two-goal lead
  • captaining the side
  • being one of the oldest in the team
