Robbie ready for Chelsea

Posted on 14 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).

While Robbie Keane knows the visit of Chelsea presents one of the biggest challenges of the season, he believes Jose Mourinho's side will not particularly relish a trip to the Lane at the moment.

Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Barclays Premiership since their visit to Manchester City in mid-October, but you do have to go back to November 22 for our last league reverse.

All the same, the striker is well aware that a stern test of the team's credentials is in the offing and insists they are eagerly anticipating the test.

"Of course you do," reasoned the 100-goal marksman. "Chelsea won't be looking forward to coming to White Hart Lane with the way we're playing at the moment. They are doing very well and I'm sure they will be confident, but not over confident.

"We are on a great run and feel like we can go into every game and get a result. With the fans behind us on Saturday I don't see any reason why we can't get a good result.

"Every game you want to win, regardless of whether it is against Chelsea or anybody. It's nice to beat the bigger teams, if we can win it is only progress for the team and that can only be a good thing."

Meanwhile, Robbie looked back over the unbeaten festive period and reports he has not enjoyed such a productive one before. Five games took place between Boxing Day and January 8, which yielded three wins and two draws.

"No, I have won a games over Christmas before, but not as many as we have. We haven't lost a game yet whereas last year we had only just won one. Things have been great and full credit to the lads, when we had the bad run we knew it would come and once we started playing the goals would flow."

And what about the continued impact of a certain Dutchman?

"He's doing alright, yeah! He's come in, changed the club around and bought in different ideas that have worked in our favour."
