The 28-year-old is confident that his side can get maximum points at White Hart Lane against Fulham on the final day to safeguard their position in the top four.

“It will be an amazing game, the fans will be with us and hopefully we’ll get what we deserve, and that’s to finish in the top four.”
Spurs fought back from a goal down against Villa in their last outing despite being having to play much of the game with 10 men following Danny Rose’s dismissal and the former Arsenal man was full of praise for the character shown by his side.
“We knew it would be tough,” he said. “We needed to win and they needed to win to keep out of relegation.
“They scored a deflected goal in the first half. What could we do about that? Nothing.
