We're confident - Robbie

Robbie Keane insists the lads will relish taking on resurgent Chelsea at the Lane on Saturday.

The arrival of Guus Hiddink appears to have returned the Blues to the form that won successive titles in 2005 and 2006 with six wins in seven games since he took over on February 16.

That run started with a 1-0 win at Villa and they've won two more Premier League games 1-0, beat Juventus in the Champions League and reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Nevertheless, Robbie refers to our own form - five unbeaten, one defeat in the last eight in the Premier League - and insists we'll be looking to win on home soil.

"It's important we take advantage of how well we're playing and we go into it knowing that if we play as well as we can do, we can beat anyone," said the skipper.

"We're as good as anyone on our day. We can be confident. There is no reason why we can't get the three points at White Hart Lane."

Robbie scored one of the goals of last season in a memorable 4-4 draw in the corresponding fixture just over a year ago and we grabbed a point at Stamford Bridge in August.

"It's always a good game," he said. "Chelsea are a fantastic team and when we play it's always fascinating. As players we always look forward to these games. These are the matches everyone wants to be involved."
