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).

It was a very difficult game for us at Arsenal on Saturday, we had chances and didn't play on the back foot.

We maybe even should have been in front by three going into half-time, while our goalkeeper played ever so well and made two fine saves as we defended ever so well. We broke not badly and we were on top of the game in the first 20 minutes of the second half.

We had a lot of the play, played some decent football at times but, in the end, we got done with a horrible deflection.

I think it was an unfair defeat because we certainly gave it a go and I don't think anyone will deny that. We didn't go with a defensive-minded philosophy and we tried to play.

I don't want to be churlish, but I felt the referee booked some of our players a little bit too easily and did not take action elsewhere. In saying that, I don't think he affected the result at all.
