Tottenham midfielder Sandro has said that the club can prove that they have the title ambitions by beating Chelsea at White Hart Lane.
The club will be facing fourth placed Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Thursday night in a crucial encounter for both teams. Chelsea come under the match on the back of a draw with Wigan, which has all but finished their hopes of winning the title. Tottenham, on the other hand, comes on the back of a lacklustre win against Sunderland during the weekend. Tottenham have been excellent all season long when it comes to their attacking play, but they could only win by a solitary goal against Sunderland.
However, midfielder Sandro has said that they will prove that their current third position in the table is no fluke. Harry Redknapp will be without a number of crucial players for the visit of Chelsea. The most important player Tottenham will be missing will undoubtedly be Gareth Bale, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury. Further, Harry Redknapp will also be without Aaron Lennon, while Jermain Defoe has been rated as a doubt for this game. Ledley King played the whole match against Sunderland and he is likely to be touch and go for the match.
Chelsea will be extremely worried about the fitness of Brazilian duo Ramires and David Luiz. Progress has been one of the star performers for Chelsea this season, but he could miss the match with an ankle injury. “It can give us the belief that we can win the title. If we win this game, the only way will be up for us. We can make a big statement, although it will be a very difficult game. Yes, we can win the title. Why not?” asked midfielder Sandro.
