Dawson: It’s out of our hands


Michael Dawson admits that the race for Champions League football is now out of our hands following our 2-2 draw at Chelsea, but insists the team will keep battling on.

With two games remaining we are two points adrift of Arsenal, with Chelsea a point better off. It was disappointing not to come away from Stamford Bridge with all three points, but a draw at least gives us a fighting chance with Stoke and Sunderland left to face us.

We showed plenty of spirit, coming twice from behind to get ourselves back in the game – however it’s frustrating that both of Chelsea’s goals came from mistakes from us.

“It keeps it going,” Dawson told Sky Sports 1.

“It’s out of our hands if Arsenal win their two games. We’ll keep fighting.”

“It was a tough battle,” Dawson added.

“We gave ourselves a mountain to climb giving away a goal so early. We showed that fighting spirit that we’ve got and kept going.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What was the manager doing? He has the best Spurs midfielder (Tom Carroll) on the bench and only considered bringing him on with 10 minutes to go, which is not enough time.

    This is a repeat of Redknapp who also never picked the young players.
