Mousa Dembele insists Tottenham have no reason to fear anyone as they prepare to face West Ham on Monday.
The midfielder scored a late equaliser in Lyon in midweek to book us a place in the last 16 of the Europa League where we will face Inter Milan.
A win at Upton Park would give us a four point advantage over Arsenal who closed the gap to just a point following their late 2-1 win against Aston Villa on Saturday.
“We don’t have to fear any team,” Dembele told the press.
“People have respect for us. If you’re in a winning mood it’s important in the league.
“We have two more very important games coming up in the league so the confidence will stay high and that’s good for us.”
“It will be a different game to the Lyon one of course,” Dembele added.
“Teams always have a lot of respect for us and they drop back so it’s always difficult, but I think we need to do the difference, we have to fight for each other as well. It will be a physical game, for sure, but we are used to it and this is a special match for us and the supporters too because it is a derby.”
