Along with Swansea City, the side of Tim Sherwood is the only Premier League teams which are fighting to get into the next stages of the Europa League. Tottenham has to go against the Ukrainian team Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk on February 20 at the Dnipro-Arena.
The holy grail of European competitions is without doubt the Champions League as all the major clubs are going head to head with each other, from Barcelona to Bayern Munich it’s a royal rumble of world class players from almost anywhere you look at it but even though the Europa League does not receive the same amount of praise, it still is a tournament where it is highly rated by many players and coaches including Tim Sherwood as he expressed his feelings about the tournament.
Tim Sherwood said, “I love the Europa League. There are a lot of games coming up but we haven’t got to worry about that. We’re out of the rest of the competitions and we’ve got a big enough squad here to cope’’.
“There will be opportunities for other people to play because the games will come thick and fast and you’re playing on Thursday and Sunday. You’re going to have to rest a few or maybe just change the selection.”
Tottenham is behind Liverpool in the Premier League having 3 points disadvantage but they are hoping to secure a higher spot in the tables that can allow them to finish the current campaign on a positive note and hopefully even take hold of a Champions League position for the upcoming season. Sherwood has a fairly busy schedule ahead of him but he is confident about the strength and width that his team is capable of demonstrating in the next few weeks and month as they have to go against Chelsea and Arsenal on consecutive matches.
