Dejan Kulusevski keen to keep building on fast start at Tottenham

Dejan Kulusevski insists there is more improvement to come from him after opening his account for the Premier League season in Tottenham's 4-1 rout of Southampton.

The Swede added Spurs' fourth goal of the afternoon as Antonio Conte's side came from a goal down to move to the top of the table on Saturday.

The 22-year-old collected a pass from Emerson Royal on the corner of the six-yard box before passing his finish into the bottom corner, and Kulusevski insists he is keen to continue his improvement in front of goal.

"All my goals come from this area, or three or four metres back. I have to keep scoring these but also keep evolving my game and score different goals," he told Spurs TV.

"The players that came in are amazing, I think they will help us a lot and it is very important all 20 players are ready to play.

"For me, I have to grow. I have to get better in every way. I want to become a better football player so I have got to keep listening to my fantastic coach, be humble and keep living my dream."

The Swede was a central component in Spurs' push for a Champions League finish last term, and he admits Conte's style of play suits the side's attacking qualities.

"It wasn't an easy game, going behind at home isn't nice but after we scored we could have scored a lot more," he added.

"I love how this team is playing because we create a lot of chances and the fans are enjoying it. I like playing and I've missed playing.

"It is so nice to be back in front of the fans and the family and I really enjoyed it."
