Mousa Dembele: The best yet to come from Spurs

Mousa Dembele believes the best is yet to come at Tottenham, even suggesting they are capable of challenging for the title in the coming years.

The halcyon days of Champions League football under Harry Redknapp have become an increasingly distant memory in recent years, with big-name arrivals unable to secure Spurs' place back at the top table.

Things are looking up once again at White Hart Lane, though, with a trip to Wembley for the League Cup on the horizon, as well as a realistic chance of finishing in the top four.

Key to that have been standout performances from the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris, as well as the fact Spurs appear to finally have ridden themselves of their inability to compete against the Premier League's best.

Tonight's trip to Liverpool will be another test of that after a north London derby win Dembele described as the "total package" - a defeat of Arsenal, he suggests, is the tip of the iceberg.

The Belgian said: "Yeah, you see as well how the club works now."
