Jermain Defoe insists the lads are confident ahead of a ‘massive game’ against Chelsea.

It’s a key match in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

We need the points as we bid for a place in the top four with Manchester City now four points clear. Chelsea are still chasing Manchester United in defence of their title – although United are six points ahead of the Blues.

“We always play well against the top teams and we’re good enough to go there and win,” insisted ‘JD’, who hit his 100th Spurs goal against West Brom on Saturday.

“It’s a massive game, another one we’re looking forward to. I’m sure the lads will be confident we can win that game. It’s so important, every game is like a cup final and we’ll approach it believing we can win.”

Jermain insists that belief stretches to making the top four again.

“We all believe we can finish fourth again,” he added.

“The nights here (in the Champions League) were so special and I think it’s been a long time coming for the club and everyone deserves it.

“We’ve got good enough players to compete at that level and we showed it this season. For me, on a personal note, I missed a lot of the games through injury and I’m desperate to play in the Champions League again because it’s the best competition on a club level.”
