Andros Townsend has vowed to further improve his game and cement his place as a regular in Tottenham’s first team.

The 22-year-old has earned widespread for his impressive start to the season but the England international is determined to improve his key statistics for the north Londoners.

“Goals and assists make you undroppable,” Townsend told talkSPORT.

“I know there are great players all vying for two wing spots at Spurs, so I need to get more goals and assists to cement my place in the team and not give the manager an excuse to drop me.”

Townsend earned plenty of new admirers after a stunning England debut against Montenegro, before also impressing in the Three Lions’ final World Cup qualifier against Poland.

But the Spurs man insists he will not be getting carried away by the extra attention he has been receiving.

“I tried not to read as much of the press as I could after the game,” he said.

“I watched highlights and everything was about me. Then it started to sink in – the achievement of scoring on my debut in such an important game and playing so well.

“But at the end of the day, it’s not the media who pick the England team, it’s the manager.”
