+Pre-match: Chelsea

Posted on 12 January 2005  - 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).

Michael Carrick is quite happy for us to go in as underdogs for the big one against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Stamford Bridge outfit arrive at the Lane top of the Barclays Premiership with just two defeats in all competitions this season.

However, we're on a run of eight unbeaten and only the penalty loss against Liverpool in the Carling Cup in our last 10 games.

Michael said: "We'll do our best to keep them quiet but they have so much quality that on the day, if they are really firing, they are very difficult to stop.

"Having said that, if we're playing well, we'll be difficult to stop. We're confident and hopefully that will make a difference.

"It's a big game and there probably aren't that many people outside our club who expect us to win.

"Maybe that's a good thing because we can go in there with nothing to lose.

"The way we're looking at it is that we want to win the game. We know it's Chelsea and maybe that's a lot to ask but it shows how far we've come in the last couple of months."
