Moussa Dembele is confident of his place in Tottenham's midfield.

Dembele does not feel threatened by Scott Parker's return from injury.

He said: "(Parker's return is) very important. If you see him in training you can see he can be very important, he’s a very organised guy, very professional.

"He knows what he can do and I think he is an unbelievable player as well so it’s good for the team that there are a lot of rivals (in midfield) because it makes everybody sharp.

"I know if I play one bad game then Jake Livermore, Scott Parker, Tom Huddlestone, Tom Carroll, there are a lot of good players who are behind me to come in and who can do well.

"So we have to keep playing and that keeps the level high in this team."
