Townsend relishes return to form

Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend is determined to enjoy his return to form and has dismissed talk of a White Hart Lane exit this month.

The 23-year-old England international has struggled for both form and fitness during the first half of the season with Spurs, having missed the World Cup finals last summer due to an ankle injury.

2014 was not a good year for me with form, fitness and injuries.

However, Townsend impressed after starting in the goalless draw with Manchester United and the stunning 5-3 win over Chelsea and is pleased to be back in the fold and enjoying his football once again.

He told the Daily Mail ahead of an FA Cup third round clash with Burnley: “For the manager to trust you and to throw you in against two of the best teams shows great confidence. Hopefully I can repay that faith in me.

“He is happy with how things are going. You can see that as I have played the last two games he is not looking to ship me out at the first opportunity. That has given me confidence and hopefully I can show what everyone what I’m capable of.

“2014 was not a good year for me with form, fitness and injuries. Hopefully I’m over the worst of it now and the performances are going to be better and I can get back to the form I had in 2013.”

Spurs and the Clarets met just before Christmas in a Premier League clash in the capital, with the hosts winning 2-1.

Burnley will hope that home advantage counts in their favour on Monday evening, with the Clarets 5.00 to win the Turf Moor tie in 90 minutes, while Spurs are 1.75 to secure victory in normal time and are 17.00 to go on and lift the FA Cup.
