Mousa Dembele gives his verdict on Tottenham squad's quality

Mousa Dembele

Tottenham Hotspur have gone 12 Premier League games unbeaten.

Mousa Dembele says this current Tottenham Hotspur squad is the best he has ever played in since joining the club from Fulham in 2012, The Sun reports.

The Belgium international’s debut campaign at the club saw Spurs finish fifth with an impressive 72 points, with Gareth Bale leading the scoring charts with 21 Premier League goals.

Despite struggling to replicate that achievement over the past two years, this season could see Spurs go even better as they currently preside over a 12-game unbeaten league run.

Speaking to reporters on Tottenham’s impressive start to the season, Dembele believes there is still more to come as he labels the team the best he has played in at White Hart Lane.

“This is the best team I’ve played in since I’ve been at Tottenham,” Dembele said.

“Pochettino is very much aware of the way we play, the way we press and our mentality. He is trying to change the culture of the club and that was needed.”

“Every year you have to have the feeling to achieve the Champions League otherwise we should stop playing football. We know we have a lot of quality and we’re closer than previous years.”

In light of the sale of Bale to Real Madrid in 2013, Tottenham used the money to bring in seven new players over that summer yet a number of players failed to live up to expectations.

Mauricio Pochettino took over a squad with plenty of defaults, yet over the past 18 months he has gradually improved them and recent results is evident of the progress being made.

Players such as Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Dele Alli have either come in or established themselves as regulars and it’s now difficult to pinpoint a possible weakness within Spurs’ ranks
