Arsenal Defender Says He Will be Happy if Gunners Lose

Arsenal loanee, Carl Jenkinson has confessed that he will not be supporting the club he originally belongs to by the time they take on fellow London side, Westham United again this season.

The English defender who is enjoying a second consecutive loan spell at the East-London club has become a fans' favourite and was even rumoured to be a target of a permanent deal at Upton Park.

He is fitting well into the team and has stated his committment to the Hammers, to the point of even saying he will not cheer Arsenal when they pay a visit to the Park in the return leg.

Slaven Bilic's side hit Arsenal hard when they both met on Matchday one of the 2015/16 Premier League season. They inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Arsene Wenger's side and have done the same to Liverpool (3-0}, Man City (2-1} and Chelsea (2-1}.

They will still meet with Arsenal this season and Jenkinson who will not be able to play against Arsenal as a result of FA regulations will be supporting Westham on that day.

“I’m a boyhood Arsenal fan but I’m playing for West Ham this season and when West Ham play Arsenal I want West Ham to win.” he said.

He continued by making a statement on the schock Arsenal got back in August: “It was a fantastic result and I’m sure even the boys would have been a bit shocked at that one.”

“Going to the Emirates and winning 2-0 doesn’t happen that often. But it got us off to a great start.”

Westham'a attempt to sign Jenkinson permanently was dealt a heavy blow when his parent club renewed his contract before sending him out on loan for a second time.
