Michael Dawson has played down Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of winning the Premier League title.
The Tottenham defender signed a new deal which will keep him contracted at the Lane until 2016 and is concentrating on keeping the momentum going, rather than talk of what could be.
Dawson nearly left the club at the start of last season and has proved himself worthy to AVB as the club look to break back into the Champions League.
“It’s been a great start, but it’s early days and we’ve just got to keep it going,” Dawson told ITV.
“We’ll just keep playing and hopefully we’ll keep playing with confidence, starting with West Ham.
“Things are going well at the moment, but West Ham will be a tough game. It’s a London derby and I’m sure they will want to beat us. But we’re looking forward to it.
“We’re brimming with confidence at the moment. We’ve got a new squad full of top players and a top spirit in the camp. I think we showed that in Russia.”
“We’re not going to get carried away,” Dawson said. “You have to earn the right to finish up there and there are some top teams in this division.
“We’ve earned the right to be up there at this moment but it’s early days. It’s a long hard season.”
When asked if Spurs can compete successfully on domestic and European fronts, Dawson said: “Well, we will certainly try,”
“We will give it a good go.
“We’ve got a big squad – we need one and it’s paying dividends.
“You only have to see the team we put out in Russia – it was very strong.
“We want to win the Europa League and we want to finish as high as we can in the Premier League.
“The players are certainly showing the intent to do that at the moment. Long may it continue.”
