|MOUSA ON A MISSION|
Mousa Dembele feels the season starts again this weekend.
After a fine start to 2013/2014 with four wins in four - two in the Barclays Premier League, two in the UEFA Europa League - we suffered a 1-0 loss last time out in the North London derby.
Now we return to action after the international break with the visit of Norwich City to the Lane on Saturday.
“You want to forget the Arsenal game and move on,” said Mousa.
“We had a lot of confidence before Arsenal, we played well there, we had some good moments, but we have our feet on the ground again and we know we need to work hard to get success this season.
“That starts again against Norwich on Saturday. It will be a difficult game, we saw that from Norwich last season, but we are always confident at home.”
Meanwhile, Mousa has moved ever nearer the World Cup with Belgium after the latest round of qualifying results – they now need a point from their next game in Croatia to secure a place in Brazil 2014.
“Belgium has a lot of hope now,” added Mousa, who returned fit and raring to go with team-mates Jan Vertonghen and Nacer Chadli.
“We need to take it very seriously, we’re not there yet, Croatia away is tough.
“We have a very good team, everyone knows that and we’re capable of doing anything. We need to be at the finals. Everyone hopes we get there, because we have such good players.”
