Spurs midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson believes two victories from their two remaining fixtures will be enough to steal a Champions League place at the expense of bitter rivals Arsenal.

The Icelandic international scored a late equaliser just minutes after coming on as a substitute in Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night (Wednesday).

The result means Spurs sit fifth in in the table, three points behind Chelsea and a solitary point behind their North London counterparts Arsenal with just two Premier League fixtures remaining.

And despite the season nearing its finale, Sigurdsson is confident that two wins will be enough to see Andre Villas-Boas' side into Europe’s elite competition next season.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, he said: “ We’ve got two very tough games coming up but so do the other two teams.

“We have to make sure we get six points and hopefully that will be enough because Arsenal have two very tough games remaining.”

The 23-year-old’s equaliser was only his third goal of the campaign but he hopes it could prove to be a significant one come the end of the year.

“I hope my goal will be an important one at the end of the season. We have a lot to play for and hopefully we will be happy at the end of the season. We have to do our part and hope the other teams slip up,” added Sigurdsson.

Sigurdsson and Spurs travel to Stoke on the weekend before facing relegation-battling Sunderland on the final day of the season.
