Tottenham winger Andros Townsend is confident of his place in manager Andre Villas-Boas' plans.

Tottenham did not sign any players on the final day of the summer transfer window, meaning Townsend will compete with fellow wide players Aaron Lennon and Erik Lamela for two spots in the Spurs side.

Villas-Boas must ensure his new signings quickly reach an understanding and Townsend is optimistic they can.

He added: "I am sure we will be up there at the end of the season. We have six points from the opening three games and we'll build again after the international break."
