Michael Dawson: Spurs defender ready for Arsenal showdown

Spurs will go into the third-round tie on the crest of a wave following their 2-1 win at Manchester United on New Year's Day as they continued their improvement since Tim Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas as boss.

"We never go anywhere with fear, especially Arsenal," said Dawson.

"It's a north London derby. We know what that means to the fans and to the players.

"There's immense pride for all of us in pulling that white shirt on, playing for the team and each other. That's what we'll be doing on Saturday.

"Sometimes things don't work out as well as you'd like but that's when you've got to stand strong as a team and the quality comes out when you can show the determination we did on Wednesday.

"We've never written ourselves off. People can say what they want but we've bounced back from those disappointing results.

"We knew even then that we were still right in the mix, although we are not going to get carried away just because we've gone to Old Trafford and won.

"We know we've got the FA Cup game against Arsenal and then Palace in the league.

"We'll keep plugging along, keep working and hopefully keep picking up results."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. 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.
