Mauricio Pochettino is confident Tottenham can improve this season despite failing to bring in a single new player during the transfer window.
Tottenham are the only Premier League team not to sign a player this summer with the club unable to convince Aston Villa to part with Jack Grealish.
The lack of transfer activity means Pochettino will head into the new campaign with the same squad that finished third last season and he believes they will be even better this year.
"I am happy to keep all the squad together. There were many rumours during the summer, about players out," he told reporters ahead of Saturday's game against Newcastle.
"The club made a massive effort to try and extend contracts of Harry Kane, just one example.
"The club is trying to finish the (new) stadium as soon as possible.
"It is difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players - but sometimes in football, you need to behave different.
"We are happy with our squad and we cannot improve our squad. It is better to keep our squad all together, we believe a lot in our players.
"(There is) no point to say we will not repeat a season like last year or the season before with more experience, with players who compete at the high level of the World Cup.
"We have the captain of the world champion (Hugo Lloris). That is a fantastic experience, for him to translate to our team.
"Sure, we are going to be better, no doubt about that."
