The England right-back knows Spurs have a busy fixture list as they are in the last 32 of the Europa League but wants a trophy as well as UEFA Champions League qualification.

"With the squad we have, we can do both. We are quite capable of it," Walker told The Sun.

"We need to go out and attack every game. Hopefully that will put us in a good position at the end of the season."

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas won the Europa League two seasons ago with Porto and has shown his commitment to trying to win the competition with a series of strong team selections.

And Walker is in no doubt as to the importance of the tournament as he looks to win silverware.

The 22-year-old added: "It's massive for me. I want to win stuff at Tottenham and this tournament is a great opportunity to get a medal.

"We have been good throughout the group stages. Things haven't always gone our way but we've hung in there and got the results we needed."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
