Dawson: We Don’t Fear Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspurs defender Michael Dawson said his side is confident heading into their FA Cup tie against Arsenal on Sunday after beating Manchester United on New Year’s Day.

Spurs moved into sixth place on the Wednesday following a 2-1 win over United, and spurred on by that result Dawson says his side are not afraid of current league leaders Arsenal.

“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 [against Manchester United].

“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.”
