Michael Dawson: Tottenham want to put things right after Arsenal loss
Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson says Spurs are desperate to return to action after the international break
Michael Dawson says Tottenham Hotspur can’t wait to “put things right” after their loss to Arsenal before the international break.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side suffered their first defeat of the Premier League campaign after Olivier Giroud’s first-half strike sealed three points for the Gunners in the north London derby almost a fortnight ago.
With the international break disrupting the domestic season, Dawson admitted Spurs would have liked to have played last weekend to make amends for the disappointing loss at The Emirates.
“It feels like it’s been a long couple of weeks here waiting for this next game,” Dawson told Tottenham’s website.
“We would have liked another game straight away to put things right, especially after losing at Arsenal. It’s such a blow for everyone to lose there, we know that.”
Tottenham captain Dawson insisted Spurs won’t underestimate Norwich City when Spurs take on the Canaries at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
“Norwich did well last season,” he added. “We played them early on at the Lane, they caused us a few problems and managed to get away with a draw. Of course, we then lost in the League Cup and drew in the Premier League at Carrow Road.
“They’ve made some big signings like van Wolfswinkel, Fer and Nathan Redmond from Birmingham. They have a good squad, always a tough team to play and they will be fired up – so will we.”
