Tom eyeing maximum points against Qarabag
16 September 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Tom Carroll says the players are looking to make home advantage count when we kick off our Europa League campaign against Qarabag on Thursday night.
Our first ever competitive meeting with an Azerbaijani side beckons as we embark on another European campaign at White Hart Lane.
A late substitute in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Sunderland in the Premier League, central midfielder Tom believes we’re more than capable of going on an extended run on the continental stage and says victory on our own patch in our Group J opener would be the perfect way to kick-start that quest.
“I think playing at White Hart Lane always gives us an advantage,” said the 23-year-old.
“It’ll be nice playing under the lights at home and all the lads are looking forward to it.
“At the end of the day we’re in the competition to win it. I think we’ve got a good enough squad here to do that and after the win on Sunday it gives us an even more positive attitude to go and start off with a win against Qarabag.
“We’ve got a run of home games now and we want a run of wins – that would be the ideal scenario.”
