Jose Mourinho has played down comparisons between free-scoring Tottenham and his Real Madrid side.
Spurs have scored 31 goals in their last nine matches with Harry Kane and Heung-min Son starting the campaign in red-hot form.
Kane has netted 10 goals already, while Son has nine strikes to his name – and with Gareth Bale building up his fitness, Tottenham’s attack is only set to improve.
It has led to comparisons with Mourinho’s Real Madrid team who scored a stunning 121 goals and ended up with an 89-plus goal difference when they won the LaLiga title in the 2011/12 season.
However, Mourinho insists Tottenham are still trying to find a balance having let a three-goal lead slip to West Ham last weekend.
He said: “In Real Madrid, I had amazing, amazing attacking players and we managed to build the team in a certain way.
“I have to be honest and say we have lots of good attacking players here, but we need to give stability to the team because the team needs stability in the back to feel solid, confident – to [be able to] have a go. So we need to find that balance.
“Let’s say that it is a team thing, it’s not just about individuals.
“We need to be able to play with all these attacking players and have the team with everybody ready to be organised defensively and not to give space to the opponent.
“And behind, we need to improve in some details – that’s obvious.
“You look to our squad and incredible quality and numbers and options from midfield to attack and we are trying to find solutions and we are trying to be organised.”
Mourinho brought in three defenders during the summer with Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Joe Rodon arriving.

The Portuguese coach believes it will take time for his new players to adapt to his demands.
He said: “Joe Rodon, we just love his potential, his mentality. He needs to work to get there.
“Matt Doherty has just arrived and he is also adapting. Reguilon, of course is – especially going forward – an incredible player.
“He needs also to adapt to the defensive demands of the Premier League. It’s a process.”
