Tottenham defender Michael Dawson says his side will be going to Stamford Bridge to beat Chelsea on Wednesday.
The match is expected to prove crucial in determining which clubs qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, with both teams and their London rivals Arsenal vying for the two remaining spots in the English Premier League top four.
Dawson insisted Spurs will be looking to take all three points against Chelsea, and said his team-mates are full of confidence after Gareth Bale’s late winner against Southampton last time out.
“Both teams will want to win, it’s a game we’ve been looking forward to and we’ll certainly be going there to win,” Dawson told the club’s official website.
“We’ll have to earn it. We’ll go there full of confidence and hopefully get the three points.
“We knew it was going to be tough and we needed to be patient and calm. Southampton are a top team, they kept the ball, passed it and we struggled to deal with it at times.
“We worked our socks off from back to front, it was hard work but we got there in the end. Gareth produced that bit of magic again.
“(At) this time of the season it’s about sticking together as a group and winning matches. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how you do it at this time of the season.
“Of course, we want to play well every week, but it doesn’t always happen.”
Chelsea are third on the table going into the game with Spurs, one point ahead of fourth-placed Arsenal, with Tottenham two points further back in fifth.
