Home sweet home

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).

Chris Hughton is adamant there is no fear factor as we prepare to take on Arsenal at the Lane on Saturday.


Our home form against the Gunners certainly stands up with just two defeats at the Lane in 12 North London derbies since the start of the Premiership in 1992-93.


The last defeat on home soil was back in 1999 although the last four meetings in N17 have ended in draws.


Coach Chris said: "We've done well against them at home in recent seasons and a couple of those draws were games we should really have won.


"The fear factor in terms of who the opposition is isn't there and the fact we're at home, okay, we've been up and down of late, but we have good spells at home."


Chris sees one huge advantage at the Lane - the noise of the home crowd.


"Our support has been fantastic again this season, we're playing in front of full houses and our away support has also been great," he added.


"There is no doubt our support and the general atmosphere is more vocal for this game and if you can get a vocal crowd behind you, it lifts the players.


"I'm sure that will be the same again on Saturday and that's important for us."
