Harry Redknapp insisted Tottenham's "laid-back" attitude could be the key to securing one of the UEFA Champions League places after a frustrating 0-0 draw at Sunderland.

Redknapp saw his side extend their poor recent record to just one win in seven Barclays Premier League games - but it was still enough to nudge into third. With mind-games already breaking out across the end-of-season run-in, Redknapp shrugged off suggestions the pressure might be starting to tell.

Redknapp said: "You've seen teams get in positions where the pressure gets to them but I think we're quite a laid-back bunch and will just get on with it. I don't think the players get as uptight as I do or the punters do. We're in a great position and I think we're still in the box-seat. It will come down to who plays best."
