TEENAGER Lubomir Satka says won’t be afraid of Arsenal if he is pitched in for his Premier League debut.

Head coach John Carver has just one senior centre-half available for tomorrow’s home game against Arsene Wenger’s third-placed side.

Carver will field right-back Daryl Janmaat in central defence alongside Mike Williamson.

And Satka, a Slovakia Under-21 international, is next in line should Carver lose either Janmaat or Williamson.

“It doesn’t scare me,” Satka told the club’s official website.

“I don’t feel any pressure. I want to say I’m ready, but I guess you never know until you actually play. But I’m excited.

“If I get called upon, I’ll try my best.

“Hopefully, I’ll make my debut, and it’ll be good for me to be tested against good players.

“Obviously, it would be a big test for me – I’m still young – but it would be a great learning experience.”

Satka has made one substitute appearance for United in the FA Cup.
