Tottenham captain Ledley King expects them to defeat UEFA Cup opponents Dinamo Zagreb tonight with a "good, English style" of play.

"First of all, we need to win this game," he told the Spurs website. "Losing the first group game at Udinese wasn't an ideal start for us, so we need to put that right.

"For us, it's best to stick to our style of football and give them the good old English way of playing - a high-tempo, physical game.

"If we play a European-style game against these teams they are used to that and it will suit them. So our style is the best route for us and I'm sure we'll give them a tough time at the Lane.

"These European games are always difficult and Dinamo have been playing in Europe long enough to know how it works, so I'm sure it will be a test for us, but we're confident we can come through it."
