Deadly duo

Posted on 22 October 2002  - 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 feels that the striking partnership between Teddy Sheringham and Robbie Keane is developing nicely as we head into a testing sequence of fixtures.

Liverpool are next, followed by Chelsea and Burnley and the striking duo are in pretty good shape having netted four goals in the last three games between them.

Teddy, as usual, plays more of a providing role, while boss Glenn explains that Robbie is now assigned to play more on the shoulder of the last defender.

"There were a lot of chances there and it is important that we keep the ratio of chances up," said Glenn after a victory over Bolton that featured two Keane strikes.

"Teddy could have had a hat-trick quite easily and Robbie could have ended up with one.

"The balance between their play is getting better and better. It's taken a little bit of time, but I think the last three performances have been good.

"Robbie has been playing up on the shoulder of the defender with Teddy coming off doing his link up. You can see it gelling.

"We've got good competition there. We've got Les, Steffen and Sergei so if anything happens to them or we need to freshen it up as some stage then we've got the squad to deal with it."
