Jermain Defoe in confident mood

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has stated that his side are in a confident mood ahead of the north London derby with Arsenal this Sunday, and want to secure a double over their archrivals this season.

A 2-1 win at White Hart Lane earlier in the season was an indicator that Harry Redknapp’s men were moving in the right direction, and Spurs are currently comfortable in third place, ten points clear of Arsenal.

The England international has admitted that his side want the three points at the Emirates Stadium.

“It’s going to be a difficult game but I’m confident, obviously, with the way we’re playing,” he told radio station LBC 97.3.

“We’ve got a really strong squad now and everyone’s playing well.

“Everyone’s firing and team spirit is fantastic which I think is always important if you want to try to achieve something.

“We’ve got a great chance to go there and get three points.

“It means more to Arsenal than us obviously because of the way things have gone for them this season.

“I think it’s been a lot of ups and downs, where at the beginning they didn’t start too well, then they picked it up and then they’ve had a little blip again.

“I’ve always said they’re a good team.

“You can’t write Arsenal off. In football it’s always the next game, you can change it in the next one. And I think, playing against us, it’ll be a different Arsenal from what people have seen over the last few weeks,” he finished.
