Sandro: Tottenham midfielder appears to be a lucky omen for the club
Tottenham's Brazilian midfielder Sandro is still confident they can win the Premier League title.
Spurs lie eight points behind Manchester City after suffering a last-gasp 3-2 defeat to the league leaders on Sunday.
However, the powerful midfielder still has aspirations of claiming league success in England.
"We've still got our minds on the title, for sure," he told FIFA.com.
"That's been our objective since we started working our way up to the top of the table.
"We've got a great squad, and we've got to think bigger than just a Champions League place."
Sandro has not featured since limping off against West Brom on 3rd January, and his absence has coincided with a slight dip of form for Spurs.
The north Londoners are unbeaten in the 10 league matches the Brazilian midfielder has started and he hopes his impending return can help in their title push.
"I've been thinking about that run lately and the other wins we've had when I've come off the bench," Sandro said.
"I'm pleased with the stats and with how it's all working out."
He added: "Things have gone well whenever I've played this season, and that's why I feel we're still in the mix for the title."
