Icelandic midfielder remains upbeat despite his side’s poor recent form.
Tottenham’s Gylfi Sigurdsson believes his side still has what it takes to secure a Champions League qualification spot according to Sky Sports.
The Icelandic midfielder has seen his side lose ground in the race for a top four finish after a run of losses.
Tottenham’s recent form is reminiscent of the capitulation they suffered last season which led to them just missing out on a qualification spot despite appearing to be comfortably placed going into the final few months.
While Tottenham eventually finished fourth last year, Chelsea’s Champions League victory meant that they cruelly missed out on this season’s competition.
But Sigurdsson believes the club are ready to bounce back from their recent poor form and secure a top four finish.
They are currently four points ahead of their city rivals Arsenal but have played a game extra meaning the difference could be reduced to just one point.
‘We just need to pick ourselves up, stay together and perform well until the end of the season’, said Sigurdsson.
‘It is in our hands and we are in a good position to make sure we get the Champions League spot. We showed during the season that we are more than capable.
‘Even though [we've had] a couple of bad results, we won’t start doubting ourselves.
‘It’s down to us now and we have just got to make sure we are playing the way we’ve been playing throughout the season.’
Tottenham lost 1-0 to Fulham at the weekend after a Dimitar Berbatov goal snatched all three points for the Cottagers.
That rounded off a disappointing week for Spurs, who lost 3-2 to Liverpool the weekend before and went down 4-1 to Inter Milan in the Europa League.
Tottenham did however progress to the next round on the away goals rule.
