Sandro: Confident Tottenham can defeat London rivals Chelsea on Saturday

Spurs lost 4-2 in the corresponding fixture at White Hart Lane last term but have started the new campaign in fine form and go into the weekend clash full of confidence.

Having cruised to a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, Sandro has challenged his team-mates to turn in another strong performance.

"Chelsea is a great game and everyone is looking forward to it," Sandro said on the club's official website.

"Last season we lost at home and this season we're determined to win. We have to play like we played at Villa. Let's try and take this big win."

Sandro made his first start alongside Paulinho in the win at Villa, and he has been impressed by how his fellow Brazilian has settled into English football.

"It was my first time to play with Paulinho and he's amazing," he added. "He's on fire at the moment. I'm so glad for him and everyone enjoyed this moment."
