Gomes wary of Villa threat


Heurelho Gomes has stressed the importance of a good Christmas campaign for Tottenham.

Spurs travel to Aston Villa on Boxing Day and the Brazilian admits that it is not going to be an easy game. We then welcome Newcastle to White Hart Lane two days later.

“It’s an important time for us to get results and win games and hopefully we can do that for the rest of the season,” said Gomes.

“We’ve got a difficult game at Aston Villa. They are always dangerous in their own stadium but we believe we can win there.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We will win if Gomes keeps a clean sheet and and stay on his line when we are under attack unless its to clear a ball he his favourite get to. The problem at the moment if you study Goals we are conceding Gomes is wandering of his line and also not coming for crosses with his usual confidants . We had this problem with Robinson he started to drift of his line and we started conceding goals from distance at the moment ours are from 12 yards out including headers like Twenty scored. All gomes has to do is stay on his line and then he only has 8ft by 8ft to make diving saves if he wanders off is line the gap widens with every foot when he does this he his outstanding the best player to keep him between the sticks is King who makes sure he stays put because Gomes trust his speed to get back and cover tackle any breakaways .
