Christian Eriksen is confident Tottenham will be even stronger this season following their two new signings.
Spurs mounted a serious push for their first ever Premier League crown last campaign but fell just short to surprise package Leicester.
Tottenham finished third behind the Foxes and north London rivals Arsenal but secured a spot in the Champions League for the first time since the 2010-11 season.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has strengthened his squad with midfield enforcer Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, and is very close to securing a deal for Georges-Kevin N’Koudou according to Sky Sports News.
Crucially, Pochettino has been able to hang on to the players who were so key to the team’s revival last season.
“We have the same team, we did well with the same team last year,” Eriksen told Tribal Football.”Now we have two new players and hopefully that will make us even stronger.
“That will make us push even harder for one of the spaces we want but it’s too early to say if we want the title or not.
“For us, we have to see where we are and continue to do well. We have Champions League to think about this year so it’s a bit different to other years.”
Spurs will have the welcomed distraction of European football this year and will be playing their home games at Wembley Stadium after agreeing a deal.
Pochettino looks set to maintain the core from last season as he prepares for his third season with the club.
The young English foundation of Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane played a huge role in their success, the latter earning the golden boot award for his 25 league goals.
Alli also picked up the accolade of PFA Young Player of the Year after scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists for Pochettino’s side.
Danish midfielder Eriksen was another key player for Spurs, scoring six goals and supplying 13 assists in his 35 Premier League appearances.
In other Tottenham team news, Ledley King has given his verdict on new signing Victor Wanyama.
