Kaboul says Spurs back on track

Defender says Tottenham rediscovered best form in 3-1 win over Wigan

Younes Kaboul was delighted with the Spurs display in the 3-1 win over Wigan

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul said Spurs had rediscovered top form as they re-ignited their Barclays Premier League title challenge with a convincing 3-1 win over Wigan on Tuesday.

Gareth Bale scored either side of Luka Modric's powerful finish as Harry Redknapp's side returned to winning ways in the League.

The victory put third-placed Tottenham five points behind the two Manchester clubs who currently lead the way in the Barclays Premier League.

"Anyone can beat anyone in this League, that’s why it’s so good. I think it’s the only League in Europe like that"
- Younes Kaboul

And Kaboul said the win was important ahead of their tough next League fixture - away to Liverpool at Anfield.

"We lost last week to Man City and we didn’t play very well against Watford [in the 1-0 FA Cup win] so we had to play real quality football again," he said.

"We took three very important points, and we played very well again. It wasn’t easy but we played great football from the start. We scored early, and we carried on to try to score more goals.

"Next Monday is going to be a massive game again against Liverpool. They’re a very good team and we have to go there to have another good performance and try to get the three points.

"Anyone can beat anyone in this League, that’s why it’s so good. I think it’s the only League in Europe like that.

"Next Monday is going to be a very tough game for both teams and we have to do our best."

Kaboul also welcomed the signing of fellow Frenchman Louis Saha from Everton on transfer deadline day.

"Louis is welcome here at Spurs," he said.

"He’s a quality player and we welcome him here. I don’t know him very well, I just know he’s a good lad."
