'This is best Tottenham squad I have seen' - Defoe

Jermain Defoe feels the current crop of Tottenham players makes up the best squad he has been a part of.

Spurs, who currently sit third on the Premier League table, are preparing for the Europa League Round of 16 first leg against Inter Milan on Thursday night and Defoe suggests the North Londoners are in a good position under Andre Villas-Boas.

"I think it probably is the best squad since I have been here," he said.

"As a player I have always said when you are playing with good players it makes it easier. Especially as a forward, you know you are going to get chances in a game to score.

"There are players that could walk into other top teams in the Premier League, but it is great for everyone and keeps you on your toes because you know if you get an opportunity you have to take it.

"We have that winning mentality in training - it is just a good time to be here.

"There are players that can come into the team and do well so there is that competition which is always healthy. It is a great time to be at the club, we are playing with great players and the sky is the limit."
