Do we have a goalscoring full-back in our ranks?

Hotshot Benoit

Benoit Assou-Ekotto grabbed his second goal of the Premier League campaign on Saturday as we demolished Newcastle 5-0 at White Hart Lane, and Spurs TV Online spoke to the defender after the match about how he's scored 'a lot' of goals in recent months.

"'A lot' of goals - that's a big word! To score in a game that everyone knows is a tough game, to score quickly, it made it easier.

"Newcastle are very hard to play against, but we scored early and that made the difference. It's cool, we can enjoy every game; the good thing with Spurs is that we don't know what will happen.

"Sometimes a game is very hard but at the last minute, we will win. Before the game, no-one believed we would win 5-0, so it's a very good win."

Whilst Benoit's strike against Alan Pardew's team wasn't quite as impressive as his one against Everton that was a contender for our Goal of the Month, it carried huge importance in the context of the match.

With Louis' stunning home debut, Ade's return to scoring ways, Niko's first goal of the season and Benoit's strike, we look to be in strong goalscoring form as we head towards the business end of the season.
