Pressure on Villa

Posted on 28 December 2001  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle insists the pressure is all on Aston Villa before Saturday's crucial Premiership clash.

We have stuttered with two successive defeats at the hands of Ipswich and Southampton but Villa have also lost two on the trot and are on a run of just one win in nine Premiership games.

Glenn commented: "Villa is always a hard place to go but, having said that, they are under a bit of pressure.

"They've just lost at home and I saw them at home against Ipswich and felt they were a bit fortunate to get a result.

"But all in all, Villa are a good side and they've proved that time and time again this season.

"We know we have a hard task ourselves especially as we've come off the back of two defeats. We know we have to improve on those performances.

"It's one thing playing good, attractive football and another getting the just rewards for it.

That's where we've let ourselves down in the last few weeks.

"But that will turn with a lot of hard work and graft from the players and management. We've had to respond before and we have to again."
