Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio has underlined the importance of winning against Hull City today.
The North London outfit will head into the match placed 12th in the league table with just 14 points from 11 matches and are desperate for a win.
Summer signing Fazio has been one of the many Tottenham players who have not performed to the best of their abilities so far this season, but he insists that things need to change today.
“We need to change our fortunes,” Tottenham’s official website quotes him as saying. “Hull away is a difficult game to play, but we need to think only about the game and the three points.
“I have seen Hull on the TV this year and also last year but this is a match where we need to think only about ourselves. We have to be together on the pitch and we need to improve as a team.”
On paper, Tottenham should ease to a win against Hull, but as Fazio points out, the Tigers will make things tough for them.
Steve Bruce’s side themselves are struggling in the Premier League at the moment and are just a point above the relegation zone.
Tottenham should not think about playing pretty football today - all they should focus on is collecting the three points.
