Tottenham latest: Dawson confident ahead of Chelsea; midfielder happier under Sherwood

Christian Eriksen

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Michael Dawson is confident that Tottenham can win their first game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this Saturday.

The Spurs captain told Sky Sports News: “It had been a long time since we won at Old Trafford – 24 years I think it was – but we went there and won two on the bounce and hopefully we can do that again on Saturday night.”

Midfielder Christian Eriksen seems to be enjoying life a lot more under Tim Sherwood than he did under Andre Villas-Boas, saying the current Head Coach has given him more confidence.

He's quoted by TalkSport, saying: “He gives me a lot of confidence and a chance to play. I have played a lot of games with him now and I think it has been going alright.

“For me it’s been alright after the change of coach. For me personally I am playing more games than I did under Villas-Boas so of course it’s been different. If you are new you need to get to know everything about the club and players are the same so it wasn’t that difficult.”

Andros Townsend has spoken of the confidence that being called up for England has given him. Townsend is one of a number of Tottenham players on international duty this week.

He’s quoted by the Spurs website, saying: “I was delighted to get called up again. I’ve had a couple of months out injured so for the manager to put his faith in me is a confidence boost for me hopefully I won’t disappoint.

“The fact that the England manager has put his confidence in me gives me added confidence to go out there and perform like I was earlier on in the season.”
