Yakubu  has scored five times against the Gunners during his long career in England and scored the winning goal that helped Reading knock out Derby County in the 5th round.

“We’re not just going there to play. We’re going there to give it our best to win,” he said.

“I can’t remember how many exactly, but I know I always score against Arsenal.”

Arsenal heads to Wembley this weekend on the back of eight successive league wins. Since losing to Southampton on New Year’s Day, the Gunners has won 16 of its 18 games in all competitions and Yakubu reckons their fine form should give his team cause to concern but believes the team can triumph.
