Davinson Sanchez has called for Tottenham to improve if and when the Premier League season resumes.
Spurs are currently eighth in the table, seven points off the Champions League places. Chelsea occupy fourth spot but catching fifth-placed Manchester United could be enough for Jose Mourinho’s men – if Manchester City’s European ban is upheld.
The Londoners were set to face United before football across Europe was suspended due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The German Bundesliga has now restarted, giving hope for the Premier League to get going again next month.
But Sanchez has acknowledged Tottenham must perform at a higher standard if it is to be a happy return to normality.
“I think everyone knows as a team we expect to do better,” the Colombian told Sky Sports News.
“The Premier League is always hard but we need to improve, that’s why we put so much work in every day, we’ll see what’s going to happen but looking back we can’t play like we were doing before.
“We have to do better if we are going to finish in the position that we want.”
Sanchez has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this term, often starting ahead of the ageing Jan Vertonghen, who has looked sluggish in recent months and is out of contract at the end of the season.
Despite mostly impressing since joining from Ajax, Sanchez still has work to do to convince Mourinho he should be a permanent part of the Spurs back line.
