​Tottenham's Davies targets silverware for club and country this campaign

Tottenham and Wales defender Ben Davies is determined not to settle for second best this season.

"Football is about winning things. If we can stay top in both competitions, for club and country, then all the better," he told the Sun.

"Being in teams like that you do learn that you can't really settle for second best if you want to get as far as you can.

"It's all about having that motivation and ­determination to be as good as you can be. That's exactly what I am trying to do."

And Davies believes going so close last term with stand him and his teammates in good stead as they attempt to win Tottenham's first title since 1961.

"Last year it was so close but yet so far.

"All these things might not have too much relevance now but later down the line when we've had that experience before then we will not want to go through that again."
