Bridge of highs

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle believes our performance at Chelsea proves we're capable of qualifying for Europe this season.

Saturday's 1-1 draw left us level on points with Southampton, Liverpool and Charlton in joint sixth in the Premiership on Saturday night, six points behind Chelsea and Everton in fourth and fifth.

Starting without key players Dean Richards and Robbie Keane, we played some of our best football of the season in the first half at Stamford Bridge and it took a special free-kick from Gianfranco Zola to level Teddy Sheringham's opener.

We also forced Carlo Cudicini into three superb saves with the last in the final minute to deny Matthew Etherington's chance of glory.

"I thought the performance was very, very good," beamed Glenn. "I was delighted with it.

"To play without Deano and Robbie, two players who have been playing particularly for us and then lose Anthony Gardner as well, it shows there is a strength in depth to the squad.

"Rightly so, we should be putting ourselves under pressure to go and get a place in Europe.

"Performances like that prove to me, as manager, that we're capable of doing that."
