Ledley King has stated his intent for the weekend by stating: "We need to get back to winning ways."
The skipper admitted his disappointment at the recent league results against Chelsea, Palace and Bolton.
Portsmouth visit the Lane in the Barclays Premiership on Saturday. "Portsmouth won't be easy but we're at home and we need to win this game," said Ledley.
"The last three results have been disappointing but it will be great to be back at White Hart Lane again, it's our place and we want to get back to playing the football we know we can.
"We know Portsmouth have a lot of talent, Yakubu is a danger up front and we know we need to shore it up at the back because we feel we can score goals against them."
Meanwhile, Ledley says the arrival of the likes of Mido, Michael Dawson and Andy Reid has boosted the squad this week.
"It's never a bad thing when new players arrive," he added. "They can breathe new life into the squad. They are all good players and eager to impress, so it's only positive for us."
