Jenas: Carling Cup defeat sparked Spurs surge

Jermaine Jenas believes their Carling Cup final defeat to Manchester United sparked their surge up the table last season.

Jenas told the Spurs website: "I thought that was the catalyst that inspired the good run and our climb up the league table," he reflected. "We put in a good performance that day, even though we came off second best in a penalty shoot-out.

"We then had that massive game on the Wednesday night against Middlesbrough.

"We were only a couple of points apart at the time, it was very close, but we went out there knowing we needed to get back to winning ways.

"We put on a great performance and never really looked back from that point."
