Spurs mildfielder Winks says consistency will be key in club’s revival

Harry Winks wants Tottenham to shed the inconsistency that has left them casting an envious eye at Europe’s elite.

After four consecutive years of Champions League football, Spurs will drop into the Europa League next season, a blow to a club with grand ambitions.

That is the consequence of finishing sixth in the Premier League, with Tottenham’s modest total of 59 points their lowest since the 2008-09 campaign.

It was small consolation that they finished above rivals Arsenal, but the Gunners’ FA Cup final victory over Chelsea meant it was they who finished the season with north London bragging rights.

Spurs and their head coach Jose Mourinho will expect to deliver more next season, and England international Winks says it will be important to start strongly.

The objective will be another top-four finish to secure a place in the 2021-22 Champions League.

“We need to have a better season, in our opinion, it’s been a bit up and down, a bit inconsistent,” Winks said on the club’s official website.

“We started to find a bit of rhythm in the last few weeks and started to get a good run of results, so let’s hope we can take that into next season and get a bit of consistency, build up a bit of confidence and finish where we deserve to finish and where we believe we should be finishing, and that’s in the top four.”
