WH Lane

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

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is confident that Spurs can inflict a first defeat of the season on Chelsea when they meet at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Spurs are on a bit of a high after coming from behind to beat Everton 2-1 at White Hart Lane yesterday, and Kane is quoted by Sky Sports confident of causing an upset on their London rivals.

He said: "We are coming off three wins in a row now in all competitions, so we'll take that confidence into the game on Wednesday.

"We're looking to get the result. Obviously Chelsea are going to be trying to do the same at home, but they are missing their main man up front. So they have to change a few things, and we're feeling good."

The man that got the winning goal for Spurs against Everton was Roberto Soldado, a forward who has struggled for form during his time at White Hart Lane, and is hoping to build on it.

He told the club's website: “After a long time without a goal I feel great. I’m just delighted that my goal can help the team to a victory.

“It’s not possible to score every game but now I’m back in the goals I hope this continues."

Christian Eriksen said the game showed the kind of mentality the team has, and that it was a much needed win given their well-documented struggles at home this season.

He told the Tottenham website: “We needed a win like that. The last home games haven’t been good and all the players are happy to show the fans that we can play football here.

“Now we have to keep it going because we have another big game at Chelsea on Wednesday.”

Finally, three people have been charged after they ran onto the pitch during the 1-0 win over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Wednesday night.

The interruption caused the delay of the match by ten minutes when the game was approaching half-time. Spurs have been charged by UEFA over the incidents.
