Roberto Soldado believes he' will soon be able to demonstrate his best form for Tottenham despite the striker struggling in front of the net this season, pinpointing Paulinho as the key to breaking through in the Premier League.

Soldado has scored just six times since joining Spurs in the summer but in the last five games the Spaniard has failed to find the back of net, leading some to claim that Andre Villas-Boas should drop the Spanish striker and instead play Jermain Defoe. 

And on the back of failing to score against Manchester United in the 2-2 draw with the Premier League title holders, Soldado has argued that as he and fellow summer-signing Paulinho continue to play together, they will establish an unstoppable relationship.

"It is a shame I did not score because there was some great play between Paulinho and I in the build-up," Soldado said, according to the Evening Standard. "It is important that we are creating the chances. Paulinho and I were combining well, he is a dangerous player when he runs in from the flanks. We have demonstrated that we are a dangerous combination.

"I think bit by bit we are getting better, we are creating more chances and that is how we are going to end up scoring goals."

Tottenham are currently ninth in the Premier League table but are just one win away from getting back into contention for a top four position; their objective at the start of the season.

The side face Fulham this Wednesday followed by Sunderland and will be counting on getting the full six points from both matches as they look to recover from a spell of two losses and two draws in their last four games.
