Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes says Jermain Defoe's return from injury cannot come too soon.

Gomes is delighted that Defoe could be back from his ankle injury soon.

“We miss him a lot because he is a goal- scorer,” said Gomes. “All the time when a player gives him the ball you expect something.

“Of course we miss him, but we have to keep going and other players have to try to score goals for us.”
