Seb seeks Reds repeat

Sebastien Bassong would love a repeat of his Spurs debut when he faces Liverpool again at Anfield tonight (Wednesday, January 20).

The defender's first appearance turned into a dream debut back in August when he headed home the winner in a 2-1 win against the Reds at the Lane.

"It was one of my happiest days," beamed Sebastien at Spurs Lodge this week. "It was such a big game, we won, I scored the winner with my first goal for Spurs, it's a great memory.

"Yes, of course I would love to repeat it but the most important thing is that we go and try to get the win. If I could score another goal it would be a dream, yes, but at the moment trying to get the win is the most important thing."

The focus in the build-up has firmly been on Liverpool, especially after last week's home defeat to Reading in the FA Cup, but they remain just four points behind us as we travel up to Anfield sitting in fourth place in the Barclays Premier League.

Rafa Benitez has also been hit by injuries to key players Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Yossi Benayoun, but Sebastien had this warning.

"Okay, they are struggling a little, but a good team will always stay a good team," he said. "I think they will fight back in the table and in the race for the top four and we have to be very careful.

"If we manage to win, we can make a bit of a gap between us, so we have to be strong and to concentrate on this game.

"If we want to finish in the top four we have to try and win these games."

Meanwhile, Sebastien has been in fine form and partnered Michael Dawson in five of our last six matches without conceding a goal, a run of clean sheets that equals the club's all-time record.

"It's a good achievement and you are always proud as a defender when you keep a clean sheet," he added. "That's' when you feel you've done a great job - it's like when a striker scores a hat-trick. Hopefully we will continue the run at Liverpool."
