Jan Vertonghen aims to take our positive Premier League momentum into Sunday's clash against Villa at the Lane.
Confidence is high in the squad after three-successive wins in the Premier League - Reading, QPR and last weekend’s fantastic performance and victory at Manchester United.
After a slight stumble back in Europa League action on Thursday - where we dominated and led against Panathinaikos, only to concede an equaliser in the second half as it ended 1-1 in Athens - Jan is looking to extend our winning run to four back in league action.
“Everything is positive and we have to carry it through against Villa,” said in-form Jan, a goalscorer at Old Trafford and our Player of the Month for September, as voted for by fans on Facebook.
“We’re all motivated to get the three points and then I think we’ll be in a strong position.”
Jan echoed the disappointment of the squad not to have seen it through against Panathinaikos.
“We played attacking football, pressed them and were the better team (in the first half),” said Jan.
“If you see the game, we had to win. We drew the first game against Lazio and it was the same, and that was disappointing too. We should have six points now, but we have two. Now we have to win the following games.”
