Clint Dempsey hunting for Chelsea scalp

Tottenham midfielder Clint DempseyTottenham midfielder Clint Dempsey is hoping he can help his new side end Chelsea‘s unbeaten start to the Premier League at White Hart Lane this weekend.

Roberto Di Matteo’s side have enjoyed six wins from their opening seven league games but Dempsey feels Spurs have finally found their feet after a slow start under new boss Andre Villas-Boas.

He told Sky Sports: “It is going to be an important game because the table is so tight. You have to take care of your home games and try and get as many results as you can.

“We want to continue this run of positive results, so we know it is going to be a tough test but we are all excited, and we have everyone back from fitness now and we are looking to make the most of this game.”

The American joined Tottenham in a transfer deadline day move from Fulham in the summer but, despite enjoying a solid start to his White Hart Lane career, admits he would like to be finding the back of the net more often having only scored once in his first seven games for Spurs.

“I feel like I am settling in,” he added.

“I have played in seven games, and six starts – with a goal and assist in the league and I would like better numbers than that but at the same time I am feeling good and playing consistently, I am playing well but I just want more goals and assists as it feels I am contributing more.”
