Harry Winks has admitted that the Tottenham players are far from happy with where they ended up this season and insisted that a sixth-place finish was not a true reflection of the squad’s quality.
Tottenham were considered by many as the most likely challengers to Manchester City and Liverpool going into the campaign but the club has endured a tumultuous season both on and off the pitch.
While a sixth-place finish is certainly a disappointment compared to the last few years, it did allow the Lilywhites to sneak into the Europa League qualifiers.
In fact, Jose Mourinho’s men went on a very good run towards the end of the season as they won four and drew two of their final six matches to overtake Wolves in the table.
Winks admitted that the Lilywhites need to be a lot more consistent next season but the England international was hopeful that the team can carry the momentum from their final few results into the 2020/21 campaign.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the 24-year-old said: “We need to have a better season, in our opinion, it’s been a bit up and down, a bit inconsistent.
“We started to find a bit of rhythm in the last few weeks and started to get a good run of results, so let’s hope we can take that into next season and get a bit of consistency, build up a bit of confidence and finish where we deserve to finish and where we believe we should be finishing, and that’s in the top four.”

Given the signings Chelsea have made and the form United have shown since the restart, pundits are writing us off already when it comes to the race for the top four. However, having an experienced manager like Jose at the helm gives us a big advantage over both Chelsea and Man Utd, with Solskjaer and Lampard still learning their trade. While I do not see us getting anywhere close to Man City and Liverpool next season, I can certainly see us finishing third and possibly winning either a domestic cup competition or the Europa League.
