‪Ledley King admits it is down to Tottenham's players to turn their season around and ensure Champions League qualification - but insists there is no crisis at White Hart Lane.‬

‪Spurs have just one win from their last eight Premier League games which has left the one-time title contenders in serious danger of finishing outside the top four.‬

‪Harry Redknapp’s side continued their stuttering form with a surprise home defeat against Norwich on Monday and captain King knows results have to improve. ‬

‪"We will have to look at a few things and have a few words and try to move on from there,” he told the Daily Mirror. “I think the earlier we speak together about it, the better it will be.‬

‪"The only thing that needs to be said is that we need to stick together this time. We need to keep going until the end of the season and we need to keep working hard for each other.‬

‪"There is not a crisis in any way. We have top players. We lost the Norwich game but we have another big one against Chelsea that we have to get up for.‬

‪"We have to stick together and keep working hard. It's the only way. It's up to the senior lads to lift the spirits of the rest of the lads and keep them there.‬

‪"There aren't many games now until the end of the season and we just have to give it a big push until then.‬

‪"Obviously it has been a long season. There are some tired legs but we have to keep going, keep pushing until the end of the season."‬

‪King is an injury doubt for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea - leaving 34-year-old January signing Ryan Nelson as Spurs' only fully-fit central defender.‬

‪Younes Kaboul limped out of the defeat to Norwich with a knee problem and William Gallas is also a serious doubt for the game at Wembley.‬

‪Redknapp is without long-term absentee Michael Dawson while Sebastien Bassong is on loan at Wolves.‬
