Danny Rose has set his team a huge challenge ahead of what he sees as a crunch month for Tottenham’s title challenge.
Talking to Sky Sports, Rose has said that he wants his team to remain unbeaten throughout November and prove they are title contenders again. Spurs are the only team that haven’t been beaten in this season’s Premier League .
Spurs face Premier League Champions Leicester at White Hart Lane on Saturday, before hosting Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday.
They then face three London derbies in the Premier League, travelling to the Emirates first to take on Arsenal, before playing host to West Ham ahead of a trip to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea.
“They are three massive games, not only because they’re London derbies but because Chelsea and Arsenal will be up there come the end of the season,” Rose told Sky Sports.
“If we don’t win any of those games we could be quite far behind Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, so even though it’s early days, November is a very important month for this football club.”
Rose knows that a good run of results in these fixtures will mean his team will be seen as strong contenders for the Premier League crown some believe they threw away last year.
“We lost the league last season and the manager wants us to use that as motivation,” Rose added.
“We’ve started the season OK and we want to continue our unbeaten run and see where that takes us.
“I don’t agree with the claim this is our last chance to win the league for a while, if you see what we did to Man City it shows we can still mix it with the best teams in the league.
“We’ve given ourselves a great platform to push on this season.”
Tottenham’s last game in October is against Leicester on Saturday afternoon at White Hart Lane in a 3pm kick-off.
In other Tottenham news, Pochettino says that there is huge pressure on this star to emulate Harry Kane.
