Defoe: Spurs will push on without Bale


Jermain Defoe insists Tottenham will be able to cope without Gareth Bale after he suffered a hamstring injury at Fulham.

Bale is expected to be sidelined for up to a fortnight after he hobbled off at Craven Cottage, but Defoe who has been in superb form in front of goal this season feels that the side is equipped to keep our superb recent form going.

Next up is Everton and we’ll be looking to make it four wins out of four.

“Obviously losing Gaz is a massive blow for the team,” Defoe told Absolute Radio.

“Because of the way he plays you can’t really replace a player like that, but at the same time I think someone else can come in.

“We’re lucky because we’ve got some great players that can come in, play out of position, adapt and do a job for the team.

“When Gaz went off the pitch Clint Dempsey went over to the left-hand side and did well. I think we will be okay.”

“When you’re scoring goals, you’re buzzing. You just can’t wait for the next game because you’ve got that belief,” Defoe said.

“You always feel like you’re going to score every game you go in to, because you’re scoring goals.

“You know you’re going to play, you know you’re going to stay on the pitch, so I just stayed focused and took the chances when they came.”
