Cudicini keeps us out again

Posted on 1 February 2003  - 12:00

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 was again left to rue the fine form of Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini after our 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian kept us out in the goalless draw back at the Lane in November and denied us again on Saturday with three top-class saves.

The pick of the bunch was a point-blank effort from Simon Davies in the first half, his full-length effort to deny Gus Poyet wasn't far behind and finally, in the last minute, he was there again to save from Matthew Etherington.

In the end it was a point each after Gianfranco Zola's free-kick cancelled out Teddy Sheringham's opener.

Boss Glenn reflected afterwards: "Cudicini has pulled off some magnificent saves against us this season, unfortunately.

"Back at the Lane we deserved to win and he was the difference and he's played a wonderful game again this time.

"We were in the driving seat, very much so and some of the football we played, to dominate them here, was a good sign for me.

"If we keep striving and keep playing like that I'm sure we'll beat this hoodoo against Chelsea in the Premiership. I feel that's just around the corner."
