​Former Tottenham star Jenas: Spurs should aim to win Premier League

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermain Jenas has told his former club they should have their sights set on winning the Premier League this season.

Spurs have not lost a league match since being beaten by Manchester United on the opening day of the season.

Jenas, writing in his Yahoo Sport Column, said Tottenham's performance against high-flying Arsenal on Sunday was evidence that Spurs can match it with the best teams in the Premier League on any given day.

Jenas said: "Spurs won every battle, every tackle and every header on Sunday and the only downside for Pochettino is that they didn't finish off the Gunners."

"That's the next step in Spurs' progression. Pochettino needs to get the mentality into his players' heads that they are a top side who could actually win the league, rather than just finish fourth."
