Posted on 14 September 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).

Chelsea is a big game. We&rsquo&#59;ve talked together as a team and if look in the past, of course, we&rsquo&#59;ve had a lot of problems against Chelsea. But we don&rsquo&#59;t live in the past and we have a chance on Sunday.<P class=MsoNormal>They have a lot of individual class, everyone knows that. But this is a wonderful game to play, especially at home and we are always confident to win home games. We have had three clean sheets at home that that gives you confidence.<P class=MsoNormal>I&rsquo&#59;m happy personally with how things have gone so far but of course I am not happy because we have a lot of injuries again and we are definitely stronger if everyone is fit.<P class=MsoNormal>These are my first games under Glenn Hoddle and for me it was important to get the chance to show I am hungry to play for Tottenham and now, after five games, it is important for me to be in the team and go from there.<P class=MsoNormal>The start hasn&rsquo&#59;t been perfect but the win against Southampton was important and we can go from there.<P class=MsoNormal>Just looking back to the win against Torquay on Thursday night, everyone knew before that we had to concentrate because the lower teams are always ready to beat the bigger clubs.<P class=MsoNormal>You have to fight first, bring them down and then play better. In the end we deserved to win.<P class=MsoNormal>The smaller teams have respect but they fight for their lives. I think that will be the game of the season for them. It is always difficult and I knew before it would be hard to beat them. But are through to the next round and that is important.<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
