Nacer Chadli discusses facing his Belgian teammates when Spurs take on Everton this weekend

There could be as many as six Belgians on the pitch at White Hart Lane on Saturday when the North Londoners host the Toffees.

Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli has been discussing the club's upcoming match against Everton this weekend in an interview with the club's website, and he touched on a couple of interesting themes ahead of the game.

Firstly, the former Twente star provided an encouraging update on the team's perception of how the season has gone thus far. Though Spurs have failed to secure a win in the Premier League it would perhaps be harsh to say they have put in poor performances in their matches, and could well have expected a better result than the one they got in each of their games.

The winger sounded relatively focused and happy with the way Spurs are playing, and expected some wins to come the Londoners way once they get that little slice of luck. 

"The result was not always good, but we showed some good things on the pitch," Chadli told the Spurs website. "Hopefully now we'll get some wins, we worked hard for it and it's just more chances and a little more luck.

"We worked hard all week to prepare ourselves for the game, and now we're ready to win."

The 25-year-old went on to discuss the fact Spurs and Everton are two Premier League sides with a hearty number of Belgian national team players in their squad, and was queried on Toffees duo Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas ahead of the match, and whether the countrymen had discussed Saturday's impending fixture.

"They're great players," Chadli admitted of his compatriots. "Romelu started the season well and scored two goals (against Barnsley in the League Cup) and Mirallas also. They're two good players.

"I think that they'll go for the win also so it should be a good game to watch.

"I speak with Romelu some times in the week, he's a good guy and is a friend of mine. Kevin also. We don't really talk about the game, I just said we need the win and they said the same also."

With Spurs eager to get those three points to get them truly off the mark, it's difficult to argue that the home side are the ones that need that the victory most.
