A number of Spurs players have continued to build their reputations over the current campaign and Jenas thinks if Tottenham can keep hold of talents such as Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli they will have done well.

Tottenham fans were shocked when Toby Alderweireld was dropped from the squad to face Stoke on Saturday and taken aback when manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was not getting in the side because of his form.

Pochettino's fourth-placed side are only behind third-placed Liverpool on goal difference, with a game in hand on the Merseyside club, and crucially have an 11-point cushion on Chelsea in fifth.

"I think for us it will be a massive achievement to finish for the third time in the top four and get the Champions League is a fantastic thing", Pochettino said.

Yet playing the kind of neat, composed football that belied their second bottom position they should have gone ahead in the 12th minute.

Zouma, who is on loan at the club from defending champions Chelsea, missed last weekend's 3-0 defeat by Arsenal with a knee injury while Diouf picked up a knock and limped off after an hour in that game. "It flicked off my shoulder and went in".

"I think it's a natural for striker they need to feel the net".

Three victories have been recorded in a row - all away from Wembley Stadium - and 10 goals have been scored with Harry Kane absent for much of that period due to an ankle injury.

"First of all the target is to finish in the top four".

Xherdan Shaqiri nearly secured Stoke a share of the spoils 10 minutes from time, but his free-kick came back off the crossbar and Spurs held on to the victory which leaves them only behind third-placed Liverpool on goal difference. Eriksen added, "He celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it". "If it's scored by Harry, or Christian I am happy".

In the race to finish in the top four, we now have the same points as Liverpool. Even against Man City we had a reasonable game and never got really cut open.
