+Hughton: Halt Henry!

Posted on 12 November 2004  - 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).

Chris Hughton says that if you stop Thierry Henry, you can stop Arsenal.


The French star has again dominated the Highbury side's goalscoring output with 12 goals, 10 in the Premiership.


With a run of 49 games unbeaten recently ended and draws against Southampton and Crystal Palace, pundits see a slight wobble at N5.


Coach Chris said: "From an offensive point of view Henry is their prolific goal maker and goal scorer and if he has a quiet day, you have a chance.


"They also have such a free-flowing style of play if you can disrupt that, you will also have a chance.


"But what they've done of late and what we've done of late is immaterial. This is a one-off game."


Chris explained that preparation this week is focused on Arsenal the team rather than the players enjoying the build-up to what is always a fantastic occasion at the Lane.

He added: "If Arsenal were a middle of the table team then the emphasis would soley be on the game.


"But the fact is Arsenal have been either the best or second best for the last few years now and they are coming here having just lost that fantastic record.


"So you tend to do less on the game itself and more on the team. We're up against arguably the best team in the country at the moment and you have to get it right tactically to get anything against them."
