Clint Dempsey has spoken of his desire to ‘do something special’ with Fulham this season and suggests he wouldn’t be content with just reaching an FA Cup semi-final.

The American midfielder’s ambition is laudable, but Roy Hodgson’s side will have to be at their very best to get past Tottenham tonight.

It would be good to reach the FA Cup semi-final, but we want to do more than just that. You don’t want to get one step closer to the final and not go all the way. If you want to do something special in your career this is the opportunity to do it.

Hopefully we can take advantage of the opportunities we have.
