Mousa's forward thinking
19 August 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Mousa Dembele feels there is plenty to be positive about as we head to high-flying Leicester on Saturday.
We’ve performed well against United and Stoke yet only have a point to show for our efforts so far in the Premier League.
United only had one shot on target but took the points thanks to an own goal while we impressed for an hour and led 2-0 against Stoke only for the Potters to hit back for 2-2 late on.
Now we travel to the KP Stadium to face a Foxes side top of the table after two wins in two under new boss Claudio Ranieri.
“We need to stay positive and think about how we played against United and particularly the first half against Stoke,” said Mousa.
“Of course, we were all disappointed after Stoke but now we have another game to show everyone that we want to go forward.
“Leicester are in a good flow but if we play like we did against Stoke over the 90 minutes we’ll have a good chance against any team.”
Mousa is also looking forward on the pitch, where he’s lined-up in a new role as a part of the attacking midfield three behind Harry Kane.
“It’s a new position for me here although I played there during my time at AZ Alkmaar,” he added. “I like it. I have a free role on the right and it’s nice to play with the other guys because we all like to switch positions, so it’s a free role for everyone.
“I want to grow in this position. I feel I can do better and better. I’m happy and the manager has given me confidence to play there as well.”
