Defoe upbeat over derby prospects

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is confident his team can complete their first north London derby double in almost 20 years this weekend.

Spurs head to Arsenal on Sunday knowing a win would stretch their lead over the fourth-placed Gunners to 13 points with 12 matches of the Barclays Premier League season left. Harry Redknapp's side overcame their bitter rivals 2-1 at White Hart Lane in October, but they have not done the double over the Gunners in the league since the 1992-93 campaign.

Having lost just once in their last 15 games, the Tottenham squad are upbeat about their chances of claiming a telling victory, and Defoe told radio station LBC 97.3: "It's going to be a difficult game but I'm confident, obviously, with the way we're playing."
