Pre-match: Chelsea

Posted on 2 April 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 has helped orchestrate one fine result this week and is now hoping to make it a win double.

The Republic of Ireland assistant manager enjoyed their fine win over Czech Republic on Wednesday and is now charged with assisting to plot Chelsea's downfall at the Lane on Saturday.

"It would be nice, I must admit," smiled Chris back at Spurs Lodge. "It is a very big, exciting game for us and it is a nice prospect for us and the supporters."

Chris admits that, with Chelsea spoilt for choice in terms of team selection, identifying the key threats and making provision for them is a difficult task and insists the focus must be on our own game.

"You've got to plan your own game and the one thing that is fact is that we'll have to play well to win the game, irrespective of what they put out against. If we get our own game right then I think we've got a chance.

"Planning for them is very difficult, we would possibly get five or six players right and every chance we'll get the rest wrong."
