Nacer Chadli reveals the target he's 'working on' after impressing against Newcastle

Nacer Chadli is looking to hit double figures for Tottenham this season.

Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli has told the club's official website that he is looking to break into double figures in Premier League goals this season.

Chadli, 25, has enjoyed a fruitful second season in English football having arrived from Twente in 2013, and has played on a regular basis under Mauricio Pochettino.

On Sunday, Chadli scored the opening goal in Tottenham's 3-1 win over Newcastle United, slamming a left footed shot past Tim Krul from long range.

The goal was Chadli's ninth of the season in the Premier League, and whilst he also has five assists to his name too, Chadli is focusing on the goals.

In an interview with the Spurs official website, Chadli admitted that he's now working on a target of reaching double figures in the Premier League, whilst also saying that the victory at St. James' Park was 'important' having lost to Aston Villa a week ago.

"I’m working on getting to double-figures but every week the most important thing is to help the team to win," said Chadli. "I’m very happy for the team. We showed focus, scored three goals and created a lot of chances. It was a convincing win."

"We were all disappointed in the week and it was important to bounce back. We prepared well for the game, we all trained hard and we were focused. It was important to win," he added.

Chadli has 11 goals in all competitions this term, but with nine in the Premier League, he is tantalisingly close to number ten.

With just five games to go, Chadli will be looking to grab that final goal to reach his target - and in doing so, move level with Christian Eriksen as the club's joint-second top goalscorer for the club in the Premier League this season, with Harry Kane way out in front.
