Michael Dawson says Tottenham will be out for revenge against bitter rivals Arsenal this Sunday after their painful 5-2 defeat at the Emirates back in November.

The Gunners romped to an emphatic victory that day after Emmanuel Adebayor was shown an early red card for a wild lunge on Santi Cazorla.

Dawson can’t wait for Sunday’s clash and has warned the Gunners that confidence is sky high at Spurs.

“It’s another north London derby and one we all look forward to - players, fans, everyone involved, even neutrals,” Dawson told Spurs’ official website.

“We had a tough time at the Emirates, taking a 5-2 beating there is never nice, but we’re back at the Lane, we’re in a rich vein of form, everyone is full of confidence and it’s a game we’re all looking forward to.”
