Tottenham star Christian Eriksen believes the club can win the Premier League title this season.

The playmaker, who signed for the north London club in the summer, would be satisfied with Champions League qualification, but doesn't believe it's an unrealistic target to challenge for the title.

Andre Villas-Boas' side have started the campaign well and currently sit in fourth place after their 1-0 victory over Hull City this past weekend.

And, after a strong star, Eriksen believes the north London outfit can go all the way this season.

Speaking to reporters, the 21-year-old said: “It’s realistic. We’re up there. We want to go in the top four and we have the team to try to become number one. Everyone would be satisfied with the Champions League next year but if we’re in the top four, we’re going to go for first.”

Eriksen, who started the season brightly, believes there is a place in England for small, creative players like himself.

He continued by saying: “There has been a change. When you get different players, you see that they can bring something else. People talked about a ‘kick-and-rush’ style in the past.

“Now, there are still big players who are very physical, but there are also technical players in the English game who want to play football.”

Eriksen could be included in the Tottenham side that takes on Hull City again in the Capital One Cup tomorrow night and Villas-Boas' side will be desperate to bring a trophy to White Hart lane this season.
