Michael Dawson says Tottenham will head to Chelsea on Wednesday full of confidence after their dramatic victory over Southampton on Saturday.

Gareth Bale struck an 86th-minute winner for Spurs against the Saints to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive.

Victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday would move Andre Villas-Boas’s men level on points with the Blues with two games to play.

And Dawson believes Spurs are in good shape ahead of the crunch clash.

“Both teams will want to win, it’s a game we’ve been looking forward to and we’ll certainly be going there to win,” Dawson told Tottenham’s website.

“We’ll have to earn it. We’ll go there full of confidence and hopefully get the three points.”

Tottenham improved on a poor first-half display against Southampton to wrap up a crucial win.

And Dawson says that the performances are not important as long as Spurs continue to win their games.

“This time of the season it’s about sticking together as a group and winning matches.

“Sometimes it doesn’t matter how you do it this time of the season. Of course, we want to play well every week but it doesn’t always happen.”
