Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to improve upon their 2019/20 season this time around after having endured a rather disappointing campaign.

The Lilywhites scraped a sixth-place finish in the Premier League thanks to a late burst of good form post-lockdown, which was enough to secure Europa League qualification.

After having been knocked out of the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Champions League earlier than anticipated last season, Spurs will be looking to end that trophy drought this year.

The Lilywhites haven’t lifted a piece of silverware in well over ten years, dating back to their 2008 Carling Cup final win over Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho, who is a serial winner himself, was asked in his press conference today what a successful season for Tottenham would look like.

Rather than naming certain trophies or positions in the table, Mourinho highlighted a desire to show ambition this season, perhaps hinting more at a change in mentality at Spurs.

Football London report that Mourinho said: “Win every match. That’s our ambition.

“Of course, look at me and say ‘what a silly answer’, which I accept and everybody knows that we are not going to win every match but my ambition is to go to every match with this feeling that we want to win and we can win.

“Of course, we are going to lose and of course we are going to draw but I want, this is my challenge with the team, this is my state of mind, this level of confidence, this level of self-esteem.

“I want to go to every match, it doesn’t matter where, it doesn’t matter the opponent, I want to go to every match and the team only with one objective – we go there to win.”
