Tottenham can go above Liverpool and Everton and earn a Champions League spot if Tim Sherwood finds the right structure.

Sherwood claimed he is confident with the current squad and he expecting to finish in the top four.

Since he took over the Portuguese, Sherwood brought his own style and erased Andre Villas-Boas's tactics by applying a 4-4-2 formation.

Moreover, having brought the confident back in all the players, Sherwood succeeds to the win 13 points in 14 possible in his six first Premier League matches in charge of the north London club.

Tottenham are currently two points behind Liverpool sitting fourth, and can still finish in the top four if Sherwood's men manage to win most of their remaining matches, especially their clash against the Reds in March, in order to close their gap.

Since the departure of Gareth Bale last summer, Spurs have struggled to build an attacking football-based system with the seven new players they brought in the 2013 summer transfer window.

With the like of Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Christian Eriksen and the youngest Erik Lamela, everyone expected a strong Tottenham side that would be in a serious race for the Premier League tittle.

However, former Spurs coach Villas-Boas failed to play outstanding football with a squad worth £100m. Having fixed the defencing problems, the Portuguese saw his team left with a major problem upfront.

With a team based too much on the defensive line, a lack of goals saw Spurs losing points and conceding a certain amount of goals against the big boys Manchester City and Liverpool.
