Vurnon Anita says that he and his teammates will have to give a footballers’ ‘more than 100%’ if they are to follow up Liverpool, with another victory at Spurs.
The midfielder can’t put his finger on why the performance against Liverpool was so much better than the previous two or three but he believe that last Sunday the team got both the aggression and football right.
Vurmon Anita will be reunited with three former Ajax players who he highly rates: Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Eriksen.
The midfielder saying that the players have kept their ‘feet on the floor’ this week in training, hoping to make it three wins in a row at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.
Vurnon Anita talking to nufc tv:
“Liverpool was a good win, against an opposition like that it is always nice.”
‘A big difference to the previous two, some would say three, performances – why?’
“I don’t know, if we knew we would do it every game. I think everything was just right against Liverpool: the aggression, the football, everything.”
‘You and Jack Colback seem to provide a really good platform for Gini Wijnaldum to shine.’
“Yes, of course. We like to play with him and we work hard as a team, then you see the special things he (Wijnaldum) can do and what he did on Sunday.”
‘Different feeling around the training ground compared to last week?’
“Of course, everybody is more ready with a smile, but still we have to stay with both feet on the floor and keep working like that, because we are not there yet.
“It is going to be a tough match (at Spurs) and we will have to be like last Sunday to have a chance.”
‘You know a few of their players from Ajax?’
“Of course; Vertonghen, Eriksen and Alderweireld – I played with them a long time at Ajax and they are very good players.”
‘Won the last two Premier League games at White Hart Lane…’
“Of course, we need three points and we must give more than 100% to win the game.”
