Mousa Dembele: Tottenham midfielder tangles with Cameron Jerome

Spurs have won four matches out of five in the Premier League since Sherwood took charge following the 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Dembele has been impressed with Sherwood and believes he can steer Tottenham to a top-four finish and a Champions League place.

"He gives us a lot of confidence," Dembele said of the 44-year-old.

"Everyone likes this. We didn't have a lot of time to train too much together because of the amount of games but you can see already that our style is good.

"He tells us to attack more but not with too much risk.

"But we still need to do better first half and if we do that then we can do some great things in the second half of the season."

Toronto-bound Jermain Defoe was on target against Palace and Dembele admits the England striker will be a big loss to Tottenham when he departs to the MLS at the end of February.

"For us he's very important. I think everyone knows his quality and of course we will miss him, for sure," said Dembele.

"It was nice for him to score, though. We are happy for him."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
