Tottenham striker Defoe convinced Chelsea there for taking

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is convinced they can beat Chelsea this weekend.

Spurs could be just four points off the Prem's top spot if they can topple Chelsea on Sunday and Arsenal draw at Manchester United on Monday night.

Defoe said: "Sunday is another massive league game and the manager will look for the same performance.

"Top teams can turn it on - even when they've had a little blip and are not playing well.

"But we have come a long way at Spurs. Last year, we sort of set a benchmark, beating the top teams and we've done it again.

"We've beaten Arsenal and Liverpool so we look forward to every game and we believe that it doesn't matter who we play against, we can win the game and get three points.

"It's always important to have a winning mentality. Top sides have it - and we've definitely got it now, too."
