Tottenham fullback Benoit Assou-Ekotto admits he's excited by the midfield that plays ahead of him.

Spurs are powered by arguably the best midfield four in the Premier League.

Assou-Ekotto told the Mirror: "To say we have the best midfield might be a bit pretentious but I think we are the strongest in our attacking style.

"Not many teams have really quick wingers like Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale [and] a player like Luka Modric and a guy like Scott Parker, who runs for three men."
