Pre-match - Chris Hughton

Posted on 27 August 2003  - 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 says that the trip to Anfield to face Liverpool is one that everyone looks forward to each season.

Our visit to the famous arena comes tonight and Chris explained that it is a place that can inspire players and supporters alike.

"You always look forward to it, I think that whether you are a player, coach or supporter it is fantastic place to go or play and, hopefully, get some sort of result," said Chris, before adding that Liverpool's sluggish start to the season will not make the task any easier.

"I'm not sure that you can read too much into that because they are at home and capable being outstanding and have some real top quality players.

"In our case though, we are on the back of a good result at the weekend against Leeds. Not just a good result - a good performance. With that being the case you certainly go into the next game with a bit more confidence."

Fredi Kanoute netted the superb winner on Saturday and Chris says the addition of him, Bobby Zamora and Helder Postiga to the squad gives welcome options in the striking department.

"All due respect to players that have been here over the last couple of seasons but, due to injuries and people moving on, we didn't have enough choices up front. We were never displeased with the quality we had, just the lack of options.

"At this particular moment we do. When you see Fredi, who has just joined, coming off the bench and getting a goal it signals more firepower on the park and in the squad."
