Glenn: We must believe

Posted on 7 April 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 is well aware of Arsenal's strengths but insists we will go to Old Trafford with belief in our own ability.

Our new boss reflected: "We’ve already worked on how to stop Arsenal but also try to impose ourselves. There are things we’ve already spoken about. There has been a lot of hard work done already.

"Arsenal are one of the best sides in the country and have just beaten a side that were in the Champions’ League Final last year. That says it all really.

"But this is a semi-final, a London derby and a lot of that can go out of the window. We’ll go there with a belief in ourselves. We know we have to perform well but if we do that we’ll have a good chance."

Although Glenn suggested that the fact the Gunners played during in midweek might help us, he also insisted their strength in depth and the fact that we have a number of players returning from injury, and therefore lacking match fitness, would even things up.

He added: "I think the fact Arsenal played on Wednesday will help us. Fatigue levels come in but they have a strong enough squad to freshen it up.

"But even though they’ve had a match they are in better shape than us because we’ve got players who have been out for some time who might have to start the game."
