Leds: Record is there to be broken
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Ledley King feels that the win over Southampton that secured a first three point haul of the season was the perfect tonic for the challenge of trying to extract another full three from the visit of Chelsea.
Spurs have not overcome Chelsea since 1990 and, more often than not, the full quota of points has gone west.
Leds, however, says that having downed the Saints along with a cup win over Torquay, the boys are in a good frame of mind to break the hold that Chelsea appear to have established.
"You’ve just got to play one game at a time," reasoned Leds. "We’ve got our first three points and we’ll be looking to get a second against Chelsea when it comes.
"We’re just looking to win every game that we play in.
"The players know about the record, but you can only give 100 per cent in the game and we’ll see what happens."
Ledley does concede that putting the record straight does give the players an added edge and incentive going into the game.
"Definitely, we’d like to end it, but we’ve got to play and see what happens."
