Michael Dawson looks forward to his team’s upcoming match against the arch rivals Arsenal which will get underway at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. That will be a cup encounter and the Spurs will enter it with a lot of self confidence. Their performance since the arrival of the new manager has been first class.
In their last outing against the defending league champions Manchester United, the Spurs had won by 2-1.
Although Arsenal’s form at the moment is much better than that of the Red Devils but, they are not an unbeatable side by any means. Also, in recent times, they have been hit by some injuries. So, it’s certainly not impossible for Tottenham to get better of them and Dawson knows that.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, the veteran defender said, “We have played fearlessly of late and we will continue playing the same way against Arsenal too. It’s a clash between the two north London clubs and winning it would be quite sweet.”
“Whenever we go onto the field with our Tottenham jersey on, we try to give our 100% and we would do exactly the same this weekend too. We take pride in winning matches for the club.”
“There are times when you don’t manage to stick to your plans and get undesired results. It happened with us, but, we stood together and as a result, things have now started to go in our favour.”
Dawson is one of the veteran players of Tottenham. This is his 9th year at White Hart Lane. He has played a total of 220 league matches for the Lilywhites so far and 7 times, he has managed to find the net.
His form is going to be crucial for the Spurs as he is a key part of their defence.
