Mousa Dembele: Spurs will be disappointed if they don't win the title

Mousa Dembele believes that Tottenham Hotspur's season has already been a success, but says it would be disappointing if they do not win the Premier League.

Spurs still have a strong chance of being crowned English champions for the first time since 1961, since they sit only five points behind league leaders Leicester City with seven matches left in the campaign.

And Dembele, 28, has been a steadying influence in the Spurs midfield this season, while also weighing in with three goals in 24 appearances as his club target what would be just the third league title in their history.

However, the Belgium international also feels it would be an impressive achievement if Spurs overhaul Leicester from the current position, due to the tricky set of fixtures his side have remaining.

"It will be difficult, but we have to have confidence in ourselves," Dembele told reporters while on international duty with Belgium. "We have a difficult run-in too. We still have Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester (United) so it won't be easy.

"But in the Premier Leagirue, everyone can beat everyone. So we'll see.

"Of course we would be disappointed if we don't win it.

"The season has been very good -- you have to be positive too. But we have a goal and we're trying to think of that."
