Rafael van der Vaart is convinced Tottenham can finish in the top four this season.

Their free-scoring Dutchman, who has hit five goals in four games, reckons a return to the Champions League is their minimum target.

The former Real Madrid star said: "We are a better team than last year.

"We have a great squad, so that helps when you have to play a lot of games throughout the season. If we continue like this, we have a good chance. We can compete with the big teams.

"Maybe at the moment Manchester City are just too good for everyone else. But for the rest it is very even."
