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).

Les Ferdinand is relishing the thought of going into battle against the legendary Arsenal central defence again on Monday.<P class=MsoNormal>The striker has featured in just two North London derbies in his injury-ravaged career at Spurs.<P class=MsoNormal>But this time it will be a fully fit, confident, in-form Ferdinand &mdash&#59; in the best form of his three-and-a-half seasons at the club - leading our attack in Monday&rsquo&#59;s televised clash at the Lane.<P class=MsoNormal>And that could mean a tough time for his old adversaries Tony Adams and Martin Keown in the heart of the Gunners&rsquo&#59; defence.<P class=MsoNormal>The 33-year-old said: &ldquo&#59;Over the years we&rsquo&#59;ve had some good battles &mdash&#59; I think I&rsquo&#59;ve still got some of the bruises!<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Throughout the clubs I&rsquo&#59;ve been at whenever I&rsquo&#59;ve played Arsenal, at Newcastle it was an intense game, at QPR it was an intense game. You know what you are going to get and we&rsquo&#59;re all looking forward to it.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>With four goals in his last four games and voted man-of-the-match at Bradford City last time out, Ferdinand cannot wait for Monday night. &ldquo&#59;This is one game we&rsquo&#59;ve all been licking our lips for, the supporters, the players,&rdquo&#59; he enthused. &ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s always a tense battle and one we want to win.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Of course we want to win every game but there is always an added incentive against the Arsenal.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Everyone is looking forward to it, everyone is up for it and obviously still disappointed with the Bradford result because we did more than enough to earn the points. It wasn&rsquo&#59;t to be so now we have to continue our home form.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
