Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby wants his side to get maximum points at Anzhi Makhachkala in their Europa League fixture on Thursday.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby believes that his side can get the better of Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia on Thursday.

The Germany international is keen to build on their 3-0 home victory against Tromso IL two weeks ago to make it two wins out of two in the Europa League Group K.

"There are 18 points to play for, so I guess we just have to try to win every game," Spurs' official website quotes the 23-year-old as saying.

"If you see the group, we have to be confident with the aims and the qualities and the abilities we have. I think we've had a very good unbeaten run and the result against Chelsea (a 1-1 draw at home) was okay.

"We're near the top of the league, and in the Europa League we've already got off the mark, so we're flying with confidence over to Russia, but it's going to be a tough game. We have to be up for it and be prepared."

Anzhi opened their Europa League campaign with a goalless away draw with FC Sheriff in Moldova.
