Juande Ramos has stressed the importance of building on the result and performance at Chelsea when we kick-off again in the Premier League against Villa on Monday.

We travelled to Stamford Bridge back on August 31 having suffered defeats in our first two games and the signs were ominous when a Chelsea side unbeaten at home in the league since 2004 went 1-0 up.

However, Darren Bent levelled just before the break, we grew in confidence and, if anything, were the side pushing on towards the end.

"I hope the confidence is high because at Chelsea we played well and showed we can play against the big teams," said Juande at Spurs Lodge. "We now need to play in a similar way against Aston Villa and win.

"Villa is a good team - as they were last season. It is a team with experience, they play in Europe, a tough team to play and it will be difficult for us but we are at home and it's possible to win all those matches.

"It's very important to win. After the draw at Chelsea, if we win the match and get the three points it will be very good for the confidence, for the players, for the fans, for everyone."
