Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson still believes that they can qualify for next season's Champions League despite a poor run of results.

The shock 1-0 defeat verses Fulham on Sunday came after a 4-1 loss against Inter Milan and a 3-2 loss at Anfield. 

"We just need to pick ourselves up, stay together and perform well until the end of season," Sigurdsson told Sky Sports.

"It is in our hands and we are in a good position to make sure we get the Champions League spot."

Following the defeats, Spurs are now only four points ahead of rivals Arsenal and have played a game more. They also have a tricky schedule coming up with Chelsea and Mancester City to play after games against Swansea and Everton.

However, the Icelandic international believes spirit in the camp is not a problem and admits that the fourth place finish is in their hands.

He said: "Even though we've had a couple of bad results, we won't start doubting ourselves.

"It's down to us now and we have just got to make sure we are playing the way we've been playing throughout the season."

Tottenham's disappointing result against Fulham comes just three days after their defeat in Milan and Sigurdsson believes the 120 minutes that night might have played it's part.

"The 120 minutes probably played a bit of a part from Thursday night and also the travelling. We have to make sure we are fresh and ready for the next game," he added.

"We have got the determination to get into the Champions League."
