share on:

Tottenham midfielder, Harry Winks has revealed that they intend to take the game to Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola and his men are currently on a record 15 consecutive wins and lead the EPL with 11 points, after 17 games in the league.

Tottenham just got back into the top four after a win over Brighton Hove and Albion and are 18 points behind the leaders, however, Winks has confidence in his squad’s ability.

“We’re confident in our ability. We think we can go there and match them,” he is quoted as saying by ESPN.

“Obviously it’s down to the manager the way we play, but we’ll go into the game the way we go into every game: positive and on the front foot. We’ll try to out-possess them and outplay them.

“We know what we’re like as a team, we know how good we can be, how good we are. It’s a good place to set a standard and make a marker and a point.

“There’s no point in going into a game and not thinking you’re going to win. We’re a positive team, we like to think we’re one of the top teams in the division. We have to go there and prove that. We’re confident at the moment, obviously on the back of two wins and we’ll go there with full confidence and try to win.

“It’d be nice to go there and get the win, first and foremost to get the three points. But to end their run would be nice as well, it’ll be a good incentive to try to get that as well.

“I know it’s going to be tough, I know they’re a good side and you have to respect them. There’s going to be times in the game when you have to adapt and play a bit differently and that’s down to the way the manage
r wants us to play.

“They’re a good side, they’re showing how good they are but so are we. We went there last year, performed well and got a good [2-2] draw. We’re going to go into the game confident on the back of two Premier League wins. Who knows?”
