The two summer signings both managed to grab an assist during Spurs’ 3-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday, but insist that they must push on and build on their impressive runTottenham attackers Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson have expressed their delight at the club’s recent form, as they made it three wins in three with their victory over Fulham on Saturday.
After an inconsistent start to the season, Andre Villas-Boas’ men finally seem to have found their rhythm as the busy and crucial festive period approaches.
Dempsey played a vital role in his side’s victory at Craven Cottage, twice going close to scoring before threading a clever through-ball to Jermain Defoe for Tottenham’s third of the afternoon.
"We were able to open the game up in the second half and it was good to help the team win by getting an assist for Jermain,” he told the club’s official website.
"Jermain's on fire. I could have played it earlier but I held it to see if I could get more space between the centre-back and right-back, and I was able to thread it through.
"He had a great first touch and he's so clinical in front of goal. It's great to have a player of his quality."
However, the American warned that in spite of his side’s form, it is important that they continue to climb the league table.
"It's difficult to get results in this league, period," he added.
"We were going through a tough spell, but we've responded with three wins in a row. That's great, it lifts us up the table and now it's about pushing on from here."
Sigurdsson was also pivotal in his side’s victory, after turning cleverly and feeding the ball to Defoe to add Spurs’ second. And the Iceland international enjoyed his performance, claiming that things are looking bright for his team.
"When I came on it was 1-0 and I wanted to help us finish the game off," he told the club’s official website.
"I managed to get the assist and was delighted to see Jermain score. That made it 2-0 and a little more comfortable. Jermain then scored the third.
"It was a very good win and great to keep a clean sheet away from home against a team like Fulham. That's three wins in a row and things are looking good."
