Lucas Moura is confident that Tottenham Hotspur have what it takes to beat Chelsea FC in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues head into the game desperately needing the three points against their London rivals as they bid to try and break back into the top four before the season is out.

Chelsea FC find themselves in fifth place in the Premier League table and five points behind Spurs as they look to try and secure Champions League qualification for next season.

A win for Chelsea FC would open up their hopes of finishing in the top four as it would leave them just two points behind Tottenham in the race for a top-four finish.

However, Spurs January signing Lucas seems to be confident that the Lilywhites have what it takes to beat Chelsea FC in front of their home fans at White Hart Lane this weekend.

Speaking in an interview with Spurs’ website, Lucas said: “I’m sure we can have a great game but we need to respect Chelsea because they are very strong.”

He added: “We will prepare for this game in the best way possible but I believe we can win there and that’s the most important thing – the three points that we need.”

Chelsea FC were knocked out of the Champions League by FC Barcelona earlier this month, leaving them with just the FA Cup and a top-four finish in the Premier League to play for this season.
