LUFC Schmeichel - We need to play with no fear

Leeds United goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is urging his Leeds team mates to play without fear when they meet Arsenal this evening in the FA Cup replay.

Schmeichel was in fantastic form at the Emirates just over a week ago, when he helped Leeds secure this evening`s replay in a 1-1 draw.

The big Dane was only beaten by a 90th minute penalty from Cesc Fabregas after keeping the Arsenal attack at bay with a string of fine saves.

There was still time after the equaliser fro Schmeichel to produce a world class save to deny Denilson and earn Leeds a replay.

Now the tie is back at Elland Road, Schmeichel is urging his team mates to not to fear the Premiership big guns and earn a fourth round home tie with Huddersfield Town.

Speaking ahead of the game, Schmeichel said, 'If you play with fear you will lose more than you win, so I don't think there is any reason to fear Arsenal.
'It is just a matter of going out there, enjoying it and expressing ourselves. With the players we've got we have a chance.
'The difference between good players and great players is that they play without fear.'

Schmeichel`s performance in the first game earned him inclusion in the short list for the FA Cup Third Round player of the round.
