Spurs produced a superb performance to win 3-0 at White Hart Lane last week and travel to Italy for Thursday's return game in a strong position to go through to the quarter-finals.

Goalkeeper Friedel is focused on finishing the job and believes Tottenham should try and net an away goal which would leave Inter needing to score five times.

He said: "They are still in the match at 3-0, but we'll go out there with the attitude to score. And if we get that decisive away goal it will be a mountain to climb for them.

"Away goals are so important and getting a clean sheet is vitally important - as was the third goal before going to the San Siro.

"Before the game we would have taken 3-0."

Dawson is also confident that Tottenham can knock out Inter, even though they will be without the suspended Gareth Bale, but he does expect a response from the Serie A side.

"We all know how tough it is in the San Siro and one thing is for sure, they won't lie down," Dawson told the club's official website.

"There is a lot of pride at stake and I'm sure they will be hurting after losing 3-0 like they did at the Lane. We have to be ready for that.

"We're in a great position, don't get me wrong and we now have to go there, do a professional job and if we do that, we'll be okay. It won't be a walk in the park though, that's for sure."

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!
