Mousa Dembele makes his feelings clear about playing down the right

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been discussing his versatility.

Mousa Dembele is adamant he is happy playing down the right for Tottenham, according to London 24.

Indeed, the 28-year-old impressed in a central midfield role against Liverpool but started the season down the right-hand side.

As such, the Spurs man says he is happy to play in both roles - depending on the opposition. Against sides like Liverpool, Dembele sees the need to play central. Against the 'smaller teams,' though, it's different.

Dembele is quoted as saying by London 24: "At the beginning of the season I was on the right and I feel I had some good games. After that I had my injury but I was very happy in this position - but I like it in [central] midfield as well.

"It depends what team [we’re playing] as well. A team like Liverpool, there is a lot of space for me because they try to attack as well.

"But, if it is another team - maybe a smaller team - it could be [better playing] from the right, as you know they are sitting there and I want to make a difference. It really depends on the team.”

With the Liverpool game behind them, there is no reason Tottenham can't now can't target a run of wins considering their fixtures.

Anderlecht are up next in the Europa League, while an injury-ravaged Bournemouth side await Spurs after that in the Premier League.

Tim Sherwood returns to White Hart Lane thereafter (if he is still in charge of Aston VIlla by then) and that's a game Tottenham simply must be winning based on form.

With Dembele performing against Liverpool, Mauricio Pochettino will surely hope the Belgian can play a big part in the north London side's run.
