Defoe confident of Manchester dominance

Jermain Defoe is hoping Tottenham's trip to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday is as successful as their last venture to Manchester, when they defeated United 3-2 in September.

• Delaney: City-Spurs preview

Tottenham face an undefeated Manchester City side with plenty to prove after seeing their Champions League ambitions fade on Tuesday night.

But Defoe is confident that Spurs can beat any of their Premier League opposition after defeating a United outfit he feels is the benchmark.

"If you win at United, you can win anywhere and not just in England, anywhere in Europe," Defoe said. "They are one of the biggest clubs in the world and to go there and play how we did in the first half, that performance was unbelievable.

"Ok, the second half was a little different, but you get that at Old Trafford. If we can do the same at City it would be fantastic."

Defoe took man-of-the-match honours on Friday after scoring a hat-trick in Tottenham's 3-1 Europa League win over Maribor, further staking his claim as Spurs' first choice striker.

The 30-year-old believes his side can build on their strong performance in Europe.

"To score a hat-trick in a European night at the Lane, that's special," he said. "Everyone was right up for it. We passed the ball well, the movement was good and we showed great energy.

"On a personal note, the goals seem to be flowing and I just want to keep it going. I don't want to take my foot off the gas, I just want to continue scoring goals and keep winning games. We've a massive game this weekend and it's important we recover as a group and get ready for City."

While Tottenham will be happy with a repeat of last season's match against City where they escaped with a point, manager Andre Villas-Boas is not prepared to chase the game and will deploy his player's with an attacking mindset.

"We want to respond a little bit to Tottenham's philosophy," he said. "We want to be brave away from home. We certainly always try to have a go. Our away form gives us something that is very pleasing and we know that we will play in a very confident way away from home.

"We are very confident. Whenever you play the champions in their own ground it's excellent so we obviously go there to win. We will play our style of football knowing we have nothing to lose against a team like City. It will be difficult but we have our own strengths too and they will be aware of that."

Defoe's goalscoring form and the looming presence of Clint Dempsey and Emmanuel Adebayor has given Villas-Boas a positive selection headache. The Tottenham boss was full of praise for Defoe and admits Dempsey could also be rewarded for his strong start to the season.

"He [Defoe] has been playing a good amount of games and for such a prolific striker like he is, this amount of games have come with more goalscoring opportunities, which he has converted." Villas-Boas said. "I think his class is always there. He did well for us from the beginning, he started scoring straight away at Newcastle. Strikers live off goals and scoring a hat-trick is something that puts them on stilts.

"We have a couple of players that deserve respect for what they are doing. Ade played well against Maribor, but Clint has had an amazing run of games and we take that into account."
