Clean sheet the key for Kevin
10 April 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Kevin Wimmer has certainly played his part as we’ve maintained the best defensive record in the Premier League in recent weeks and he feels that security at the back will be key again as he faces Manchester United for the first time in his career this afternoon (Sunday, April 10, 4pm).
The Austrian international centre-back is also aiming for an early goal as he prepares for his 15th successive start in Jan Vertonghen’s absence in a huge game at the Lane.
Nine of those starts have been in the Premier League and we’ve only conceded six goals in that time.
“It’s not just a big game for me but for the whole team and everyone is looking forward to it,” said Kevin.
“The key will be that we’re good in defence and we don’t concede goals or chances so we don’t give them the opportunity to score.

“They have a strong squad with good players and it’s never really possible over 90 minutes to stop chances but we’ve showed that we have a good defence.
“It’s always easier after an early goal and I think that is also key, try to score an early goal and then be safe defensively.
“We’ve had some good performances in the last few weeks and we want to continue that way. We’ll try everything to get the three points. We know a team like United is hard to play but at White Hart Lane with our fans behind we’ll do our best to get the three points.”
