Jenas backs Spurs strike-force

Jermaine Jenas is excited by Tottenham's firepower for the new season.

"They are all scoring goals at the minute and combining well with each other, which is great for us," Jenas told the club's website of attacking teammates Darren Bent, Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Jermain Defoe.

"In the four of them we've got the complete striker. One that wants to run in behind, one that likes to come short, a clever one and an ultimate finisher - it is great to have those four in our squad," he added before assessing whether the Spurs front men are up with the best.

"I'd say we are definitely in the top three at least - there must be a lot of teams who would like to have our strikeforce. We're more than happy with it.

"I'm sure the manager will have a few decisions to make but that is the beauty of having a talented squad. I'm sure he would rather have that problem than not.

"We are adaptable and sometimes we will need three of them on the pitch and sometimes we will need to change things in games. There are alternatives."
