The north London side are currently in control of the race for fourth in the Premier League but the Belgian defender believes that they should be aiming even higher
|12/1||Tottenham are 12/1 with Coral to beat Newcastle 3-0
And, with Spurs having missed out on a Champions League place to their London rivals after they lifted the trophy last season, the Belgian defender is keen to eliminate all doubt this time around.
Vertonghen told reporters: "We will be happy with fourth place but we're only one point behind Chelsea, so we have to aim as high as possible.
"We have a home game against Newcastle on Saturday, so why not? I've played against all the biggest teams in the League and we can beat anybody."
