Spurs star believes this could be the turning point in the season

Tottenham recorded their first win in four games against Brighton on Saturday, securing a 2-1 win on the south coast.

Before this, Spurs had lost three games on the bounce, the first time the side had ever done that under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham dropped all three points to Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan, despite actually leading two of these games late on.

However, it seems as if form is slowly creeping back in for Spurs, after putting in a decent showing at the San Siro, and looking somewhere near decent against Brighton at the weekend.

Spurs are famed for their slow starts to the season, which seemed to be a thing of the past after they won their first three Premier League matches. However, tradition caught up to them as they slumped back down into 6th after the Liverpool loss.

Tottenham fans will be hoping that their team can finally kick on from their latest victory and have a strong winter period.

Danny Rose certainly hopes that this can be the turning point, in an interview with ESPN he said: “We’ve not been up to standard, we’re well aware of that.

“If I look back over the last few years we don’t start great. We normally pick up momentum around October and November, and we always have a strong Christmas period.

“It’s something that’s not good enough but it’s not something we’re worried about just yet, and Saturday was a great start in hopefully picking up some momentum.

“We’ve got good fixtures now on paper. I’d like to think we’re going to get full points in all our games before we go away for the international break. That’s the plan.

“It’s evident and it’s true that we’ve not played well. The manager’s made us well aware of it. We beat Newcastle, Fulham, even Manchester United, but we’ve not played well.

“We obviously didn’t want to lose against Watford and Liverpool but he [the manager] sees it as a wake-up call and a bit of a reality check for us all. Hopefully we’re back on track now.”
