Danny calls for more of the same against Blues

Our energy levels will need to be at their highest if we’re to beat Chelsea on Sunday, according to Danny Rose.

The flying left-back was on target in our memorable 5-3 victory the last time Jose Mourinho’s men came to White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day.

We’ve since come up short against the Blues in last season’s Capital One Cup Final at Wembley but, with our opponents arriving in North London off the back of four defeats in their last six Premier League games and our lads full of confidence after remaining unbeaten in our last 12 domestic fixtures, we’ll once again do battle for top flight points this weekend.

Still buoyant following our big win against West Ham last time out in the Premier League, Danny has warned that form counts for little in a game like this but has urged the players to carry a positive attitude into what promises to be another high-octane London derby.

“It needs to be the same again from us,” said the 25-year-old, who was rested for Thursday night’s Europa League victory against Qarabag.

“Obviously Chelsea have had a difficult run but that doesn’t make them a bad team. They’ve got a world-class squad, a world-class manager and it’s a derby, so form goes out of the window.

“It’s going to be a difficult game but we just hope that we can perform and give the same energy and commitment as we did against West Ham. If we do that, it will be a difficult game for them.

“From our side, we’ve got a great sense of belief inside the changing room and inside the club, so as long as we keep doing what the Head Coach asks then we know we’ll be in for an exciting season.”
