'Both teams have to win' - Mousa

Posted on 17 April 2014  - 10:00

Mousa Dembele has labelled this weekend’s London derby with Fulham as a must-win game for both teams.


We return to action at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime, hosting a Fulham side that’s battling to clamber away from the Premier League drop zone.

Three points are clearly a priority for us as well – and as we get set to face Mousa’s former club, our Belgian international midfielder knows more hard graft will be required if we’re to emerge victorious.

“I think it’s a good game in prospect because both teams have to win,” explained the 26-year-old, who got 90 minutes under his belt for our Under-21s at White Hart Lane on Monday evening after missing our last two top flight outings through injury.

“We always want to win, of course, but it’s a massive game for them as well so we know it’s not going to be easy.”
