Tottenham’s Brazilian international Sandro started Sunday’s game on the bench before coming on at half time to restore some stability in the midfield. However, the issues remained at the other end of the pitch but the defensive midfielder is adamant that Spurs can quickly recover and go on the type of winning streak that will keep the club on target for a top four finish.
“You have to win five games consecutively for this title dream to come back,” Sandro said.
“This game against Newcastle was s***. It’s hard but we have to win something.
“We have a great team and it is just at the early stages of the season, but we have to change, to be more strong, to win something.”
Going on a five game winning streak from this point will be tough to say the least as Spurs will face both Manchester clubs before the end of September but the player is certain that the squad has the ability to do just that.
“I believe we can win at City because if we play well ourselves we can beat any team. We are a good team,” the Brazilian concluded.
Spurs may be able to beat anyone on their day but as early season performances suggest, a fit and regular starting Sandro is one of the keys to a productive campaign.
