Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko has rubbished the idea their injury-hit squad will suffer a decline in performance.

England star Harry Kane and Dele Alli have both been ruled out until March, while Son Heung-min is on Asian Cup duty with South Korea as Spurs prepare for Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg away to Chelsea.

Midfielder Sissoko, is facing a race in time to be fit for that game at Stamford Bridge after a groin problem.

And the French midfielder has spoken out against pundits questioning the character of the players at this critical moment.

“I do not agree with those people who say our squad is not good enough, not strong enough. We believe in our squad,” he told the Mirror.

“We are all together and we know we are capable of doing a lot of things. Now we have to show it on the pitch and we have a good opportunity to do that against Chelsea.

“It won’t be easy. It will be a good battle. But those players who come in, they are good enough. They have proved it before. All of the squad can start games, can play. They are all good enough. We have an amazing squad.

“But we need to stay focused on our job and give our best and then we will see where we are. Hopefully, we will win something this season, because the team deserves it.”
