Andre Villas-Boas says he is looking to fine-tune his new signings this weekend, as Tottenham aim for their first win of the season against newly-promoted Reading.
Spurs have had a disappointing start to the season, losing to Newcastle and drawing with West Brom and Norwich to take just two points from their first three matches.
A win is badly needed if the side hope to catapult themselves into the top four and challenge for Champions League football, and Villas-Boas is confident that with his new faces, the current squad only need to improve slightly for everything to click into place.
"We want to put things right in our next game against Reading with attacking football & good passing," he said at Tottenham's press conference today. "It's important that the market is closed and the players are back from international duty.
"We have world class players that we're looking to fine-tune."
Reading are yet to notch up a win in the Premier League this season as well, and Villas-Boas is very wary of Tottenham underestimating them on the day, particularly after they were able to hold Stoke to a draw and score twice against Chelsea.
"We saw last season that promoted teams can surprise," he explained. "It's early days for them but their performances have been there."
Sandro also insisted that the Tottenham squad are determined to get their first win on the board, with the Brazilian treating Reading the same way as any big team.
It's important to get our first win this season," he told the Tottenham website. "We're all determined. Everyone has talked about the first win.
"It's a difficult game, every game in the Premier League is tough, but we have a good team and we will try so hard to get the three points."
With the controversy surrounding Villas-Boas' comments on keeper signing Hugo Lloris, in which the Tottenham manager said he would face a struggle to usurp Brad Friedel's position, the manager will be keen to get his mind back onto the pitch as he looks for his first win in charge at Spurs.
