Luka Modric admits that he is already looking forward to the start of the new Premier League season.
Tottenham face Manchester City on the opening day of the campaign at White Hart Lane.
“First of all, it’s good to play such a strong team,” Modric told the club’s official site.
“We’ve always done well in the big games, especially at home, and City is certainly one of those games.
“It will be great if we can go out and win it and that will give us such confidence for the next games, just like we did against Liverpool at the start of last season. We started so well after that.
“It will be an interesting game, especially as we played them in the most important game of last season right at the end of the season. It will be interesting to play them again so soon after that.
“I’m sure they will bring more players in and it will show us how we’ve worked in pre-season and where we are.
“It’s also great to be at home. We love to play at White Hart Lane.”
