Tottenham defender Assou-Ekotto happy with scoring form

Tottenham fullback Benoit Assou-Ekotto was delighted to be on the scoresheet against Newcastle United.

The Cameroon international's goal on Saturday saw him double his season's tally, while also hitting a career high, and Assou-Ekotto is delighted to be able to find the net for his team.

"I have broken my all-time record by scoring two goals in one season," he said. "Prior to that I had scored two goals, full stop. I must say they were both beautiful goals and I could have happily retired with those.

"But Emmanuel Adebayor wanted to make goals for everyone against Newcastle on Saturday and I was happy to accept mine."
