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).

Ledley King believes our excellent home form can give us the chance to quickly erase the memory of last month's Highbury nightmare.

We've only dropped five points out of a possible 24 at the Lane with six wins in eight Premiership games so far this term.

Now comes the biggest game and, arguably, test of the lot - Arsenal.

It's just a month since we were beaten in a controversial clash at Highbury with Simon Davies sent off after 26 minutes.

The team wants to put that right and Ledley explained: "We were disappointed with what happened at Highbury and we're looking forward to this game and the chance to put things right.

"We were 1-0 down when we got a player sent off and we felt we were still in the game until that happened.

"We're in better form leading up to this one and we'll be quite confident at home, our home form is good.

"We gave them a good game last season and I felt we should have won, so we'll look to do well again.

"We look a strong side at home and are difficult to beat and that's how we need to be."
