Davies determined

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).

Simon Davies says defeat to Newcastle makes it imperative that a positive result is secured against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The team were devastated by the late blow struck by the Magpies and the Welsh midfielder feels that it has only increased the magnitude of Saturday's encounter.

"Obviously everyone is gutted," said Simon. "We didn't deserve to lose that game and it was very tight throughout. It was always going to be one goal that won it and for it to come right at the end against us is hard.

"We thought with these two games coming up that we needed to get something out of both of them. Having lost against Newcastle we really need the three points on Saturday.

"It's another massive game for us. With everything that surrounds the Chelsea fixture it puts extra emphasis on us to win. We've got to go there and give it our best shot.

"It going to be difficult. They are playing very well at home and we've got to go there and battle it up and get into them. It would be hard to play them off the park, we've got to go there and get amongst it and show them we're not there to be taken."
