William Gallas insists Tottenham Hotspur need to be positive in the second leg of their Europa League tie against Lyon.

William Gallas has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur should adopt an attacking approach in the second leg of their Europa League tie with Lyon.

Spurs hold a 2-1 lead following the first match at White Hart Lane but Gallas believes that they cannot afford to protect the slender lead.

The French defender told reporters: "If we put them under pressure straight away they will be wary because if they concede a goal, they will be in trouble.

"We don't have to try to come back to London with a 0-0 scoreline. We have to play our game, the way we play all the time and then I think then we can qualify."

The winner of the tie will meet either Inter Milan or CFR Cluj in the last 16 of the competition.
