Glenn: Tough task ahead

Posted on 20 August 2001  - 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 admits tonight will be a tricky time to go to Goodison Park.

Everton will go into the televised Premiership encounter full of confidence after an opening day win at Charlton.

And while we are not short of confidence after our goalless draw against Aston Villa, that tough encounter at the Lane, injuries and the long trip up to Merseyside all have to be overcome.

“The lads have put in a massive effort against Villa and now we have to go to Everton,” said Glenn. “It’s a difficult time to go there.

“Over the last few years they’ve struggled at times and had poor form and you might have gone there when they’ve been in that form - but now we’re at the start of the season and there is no such thing as form.

“They’ve won their first game and now they play their first home game, so Goodison Park will be electric.

“We have to go there, be solid and after playing a very tough 90 minutes here it’s a bit unfortunate, both clubs, that we have to play so close again at this time of the season.”
