Juande Ramos admitted there was plenty of room for improvement throughout the squad after marking his first game in charge of Tottenham with an unconvincing Carling Cup victory over Blackpool.

Spurs reached the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win courtesy of goals from Robbie Keane and Pascal Chimbonda, but there was nervousness in the defence Ramos inherited from Martin Jol this week.

"I would say the team needs to improve in all areas, in attack and defence, but this is a team of great professionals and I hope it will improve quickly," Ramos said.
