After a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday against Everton, Tottenham went above the Toffees and into fifth spot leaving them in a Europa League qualification position, just one place off the top four.
Just three points off Liverpool in fourth, Tottenham have a goal difference of zero, meaning they would have to finish with a higher amount of points than Brendan Rodgers' side to have a realistic chance of earning a place in the Champions League.
While there are several teams fighting for the top four, including Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham, Liverpool, Tim Sherwood believes that Spurs have a great chance of securing qualification, despite struggling earlier on in the season.
The Spurs boss told reporters: "We are happy we are amongst it and leap-frogged Everton, and now we're chasing Liverpool.
"I've said it's going to the wire, today was huge, it was a cup final."
Sherwood will now look ahead to his side's clash with Newcastle United at St James' Park on Wednesday evening.
