Tottenham's home record of just 18 points from 12 matches is in contrast to a return of 26 points from the same number of away games.

With Spurs six points adrift of Liverpool in fourth ahead of Sunday's visit of Everton, Sherwood knows his side can ill-afford any more slip-ups.

"The results haven't been great from the start of the season up to now at home," Sherwood said.

"Funnily enough, in a very bad result against Man City, I thought the fans were magnificent, really stuck with us and we just hoped we could have made it a special evening.

"Unfortunately it didn't work for us but it is vitally important that you win your home games.

"Our away record has been excellent, but if you're going to be top four you've got to play very, very well and get the results both home and away."

Sherwood is expecting a tough afternoon against Everton - one point above Tottenham in the table - especially as Roberto Martinez's side lost 4-0 at Anfield in their last away fixture.

"If you look at those goals they conceded against Liverpool, it was not because they were wide open it was to do with individual errors and unfortunately they couldn't turn it around a very good side," he added.

"But I have seen Everton do that to a lot of teams this season, so we hope to

catch them on a bad day."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
