Former club in Ben's sights
04 March 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Ben Davies is looking forward to coming up against his former club this evening.
Having risen through the ranks and progressed into the first team at Swansea City, the Welsh international was a fine servant to the South Wales club before swapping the Liberty Stadium for White Hart Lane last summer.
As we prepare to face the Swans at home for the first time since Ben’s arrival, the left-back is keen to see some old faces – but even more eager to claim the three points against them.
“I had a lot of happy years at Swansea so it’s going to be a great moment for me to come up against them at White Hart Lane,” said the 21-year-old.
“However, Spurs is now my club, this is where I play my football and I’m really enjoying my time here. I know full well that I’ve got to go out there, try to win the game and get the three points.”
Asked what sort of test he expects his former team to pose tonight, Ben added: “I think we’ve got to be patient with them. They’re going to look to keep the ball for long periods of time and try to get forward when they can.
“They’ll obviously look to create chances where possible and I think they’ve got a different side to their game now as well, where they are getting forward a lot quicker.
“We’ve got to bide our time and be ready for the counter-attack, but we also need to play our football and get the job done.”
