A 3-2 victory over Swansea City at White Hart Lane last midweek was followed by a hard-fought 2-1 win at Queens Park Rangers – the ideal response after Capital One Cup Final disappointment at the start of the month.
Ahead of our trip to Manchester United this weekend, centre-half Federico has underlined the importance of those latter results in the context of our season.
“Winning both games has been very important for our confidence,” said the defender, who turns 28 on Tuesday.
“To win those two matches after the Cup Final was very important and now we need to keep going.
“We are in a good position to stay in the running for the European places and maybe be up there on the final day of the season. We’re fighting with a number of good teams but I am confident.
“Of course, we have a very difficult game at Manchester United next but we are in a good way going into this match and we need to win.”
