Cech - Why I enjoy derby 'spice'

Petr Cech is no stranger to playing in a derby at White Hart Lane.

Since making the move from Rennes to the Premier League in 2004, the Czech goalkeeper has contested many fierce matches at White Hart Lane.

With the final north London derby to be played at Tottenham's current home drawing ever nearer, the 34-year-old has revealed he can't help but soak up the atmosphere.

"I always enjoy playing there because you have a football atmosphere," Cech said. "It’s tight, it’s close to the ground and I was only going to White Hart Lane to play derbies and that makes it even more special.

"I always enjoy playing there because of the atmosphere and the derby spice on it, so I’m looking forward to this one.

"You want to win every game, especially when you know it’s a derby game where the fans feel it and you can make them even happier. But you don’t want to be on the losing side anyway and this is the motivation, this is always the engine behind our everyday work.

"That feeling when you win a big game, nobody can replace."
