LISTEN: Tottenham’s Michel Vorm pleased to draw ‘big team’ Liverpool – but hoped for Arsenal clash

22 Sep

Michel Vorm has told talkSPORT he is pleased with the fourth round draw of the EFL Cup, although he and his Tottenham teammates were hoping to face Arsenal.


Spurs were pulled out of the hat with Liverpool, with the North London club set to head to Anfield to take on Jurgen Klopp’s high-fliers.

It will be a tough clash, and the two sides fought out a high-intensity 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane in the Premier League earlier this season.

Having overcome Gillingham 5-0 on Wednesday night to reach the fourth stage of the competition, Vorm revealed how he and his teammates were watching the draw as it was ongoing.

And speaking to talkSPORT, the Dutch goalkeeper admitted that to face a ‘big team’ such as Liverpool is good – although the Spurs players were hoping to draw Arsenal.

Speaking to the Sports Bar, Vorm said: “It was quite funny, because we were watching the draw together, and we saw Man United v Man City and West Ham v Chelsea.

“Then Arsenal came out and we hoped we’d play them!

“But Liverpool away is a great game – it’s always good to play against big teams. So I’m looking forward to it!”

Vincent Janssen started the victory over Gillingham in place of the absent Harry Kane, who is currently stuck on the sidelines with an injury picked up playing against Sunderland on Sunday.

Vorm revealed Kane is positive he will be able to recover from his injury before too long, although the keeper has admitted he is pleased Janssen can now be called upon to fill the attacking void – especially with the striker netting his first goal for the Lilywhites against the Gills.

Vorm added on Kane: “He’s positive. If you know Harry he’s always positive.

“Obviously he’s disappointed it happened, but that’s football and we need to cope with it.

“That’s one of the reasons we have Vincent Janssen – to replace him [Kane] when he needs to.

“And Vincent played very well today so that’s good. But let’s hope Harry is back quick.”
