Portuguese remains upbeat, despite Spurs dropping two more points against Everton.
Tottenham Hotpur head coach Andre Villas-Boas believes that the race for this season’s Champions Leagues places will go all the way down to the final match of the campaign after watching the North London club only manage a 2-2 draw with high-flying Everton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The Portuguese was grateful to substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late equaliser at the Lane that in the end gave his side a precious point, which keeps them in the race for one of the remaining Champions League spots.
At present, fourth-paced Spurs trail west London rivals Chelsea on goal difference, while leading north London rivals Arsenal by two points, although Villas-Boas’s side have played a game more than both of their competitors.
And with Tottenham still set to play the Blues in a re-arranged fixture due to Rafa Benitez’s side involvement in the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City on Sunday, that could in effect turn out to be a Champions League decider at Stamford Bridge.
“Everything shifts very quickly in the Premier League but we have been in this position before and you have to live with the pressure,” Villas-Boas said in his post-match press conference.
“We play Manchester City and Chelsea and in those games you will probably see something being decided.”
