Tottenham boss Martin Jol is expecting a big season ahead for midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

"I expect a lot of Jenas this season, as he can be a special player for us," the Tottenham manager said.

"He was an influential player last season before he got injured, but when he came back he was even better than before.

"He dictates our rhythm and that is very important. If he is not playing we miss him. So I want him to be a special player for us.

"How many players can score six or more goals as a midfielder? Frank Lampard does, but Chelsea play in a different way and, Steven Gerrard is another.

"But I feel that if Jenas keeps progressing he could prove to a lot of people that he is probably in the same bracket as the Lampards and Gerrards of our league."
