Chelsea vs Spurs - Gylfi targets goals
07 March 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Gylfi Sigurdsson seems to have a knack of scoring against Chelsea.
The Icelandic international bagged our goal in the 1-1 draw against the Blues at White Hart Lane back in September, also finding the net last season as we drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.
As we prepare for Saturday’s showdown against Jose Mourinho’s men, Gylfi would love nothing more than to add to his tally of goals – and he’s aiming for all three points rather than just one this time around!
“Last season it was a good pass from Ade and I just managed to finish it, and this season it was Christian with the cross and Robbie (Soldado) with the lay-off,” recalled the 24-year-old.
“It wasn’t just me on target at Stamford Bridge though. I remember that goal from Ade. It was an unbelievable goal, the way he ran up and just casually finished it into the top corner.
“Of course I want to score again tomorrow – that’s the aim! It’s a very important game for us. We know it’s a big month coming up for us, we’ve got loads of important games and hopefully we can get three points tomorrow. It will be a good start to the period of tough fixtures we have.”
Having recently recovered from a thigh problem, Gylfi was on the bench for last weekend’s win against Cardiff and got a full game under his belt in midweek when playing in Iceland’s 3-1 friendly reverse against Wales.
And he admits he’s determined to banish the memory of his spell on the sidelines by playing his part in what promises to be an exciting run-in to the end of the season.
“It’s been a frustrating three months for me but it was good to get the 90 minutes in on Wednesday,” he added. “I was a bit tired afterwards but I’ll be fine for Saturday. It’s a vital few weeks ahead.”
