Huddlestone, Spurs gunning for Europe

2 November 2012 16:31

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone hopes the club can finish in the Champions League places on a more regular basis.

With Spurs having finished fourth in two of the past three seasons, Huddlestone wants to make a habit of challenging for a place among Europe's elite.

"I like to think the top four will be our natural habitat as a club," Huddlestone told the Daily Mirror.

"We've been to the Champions League before, we're aiming high again and it's good to be back," he added, referring to his comeback from injury.

Huddlestone is hoping to win back a regular first-team berth following a lengthy battle with an ankle injury.

"Basically I've lost nearly 18 months of my career to injury at a time when I should be coming into my prime," he said.

"I had half-cemented a place in the team, we had finished fourth under Harry Redknapp and we were going well in the Champions League when I first picked up the ankle injury, and it was the start of a long struggle.

"Last year was a write-off and a nightmare, especially watching the lads do so well up until February, when they were in with a chance of the title, and then not being able to help out when results dipped a bit.

"Luckily, since we reported back for pre-season, I've been fully fit and I've enjoyed being involved with the boys again."

Tottenham's next match is at home to Wigan Athletic in the Premier League on Saturday.
