Dempsey: It's Getting Tense at White Hart Lane

MOST COMMENTED

The tension is getting noticeably thick at White Hart Lane, Tottenham forward Clint Dempsey said after Spurs’ 2-2 draw against Everton in the English Premier League on Sunday. The North London club is chasing both Europa League glory as well as a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League, and supporters, who have witnessed late season collapses from Spurs in the past, are creating a tense atmosphere inside in the stadium, the American said.

"That's the way it's kind of been the last few games at home It's been tense. I've felt like that's how the atmosphere has been,” Dempsey said. "I don't know if it has been affecting performances. It's been noticeable, in the last three home games.” Spurs recorded two draws and a loss in its last three home games in all competitions.

"It's a little bit more stressful but it's a good stress,” Demspey added. “At least we're pushing to try to get that [Champions League] spot. It's going to come to the end and, hopefully, we have enough character to get the job done.”

Spurs currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League spot in the EPL standings, two points ahead of fifth-place Arsenal, but it has played one game more than both third-place Chelsea and the Gunners. If Arsenal and Chelsea win their remaining games, Tottenham would not qualify for the Champions League.
