The Premier League is being tightly contested with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City all separated by a few points and according to Tim Sherwood, the top 4 spots will go down to the wire.
“We are happy we are amongst it and leap-frogged Everton, and now we’re chasing Liverpool,” said Sherwood.
Tottenham claimed a vital 1-0 triumph against Everton with the Togolese forward Adebayor scoring the only goal of the entire encounter but it was just enough for Sherwood’s side to claim all 3 points and get into a higher spot in the English league.
“You won’t win games three or four nil all the time,” said Sherwood after seeing his sixth victory from nine league games in charge. We had to dig in there today. If you want to get where we want to be you’ll have to sometimes win without playing well.”
They are attempting to secure a Champions League spot for the upcoming season and Adebayor is one of the driving forces that is pushing the team ahead and helped placing Tottenham at their current position.
Sherwood will have the support of the French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris by his side after the shot-stopper shut down claims and reports which were linking him to make a move to Arsenal.
According to Olivier Giroud, the player of Arsenal stated that he has talked with Hugo Lloris and the goalkeeper said that he would like to join the club guided by Arsene Wenger but Lloris reacted quickly and said that he is only focused about playing well with Tottenham.
Lloris told Spurs’ official website: “I heard about Giroud’s interview. I think maybe some words were twisted, but it is embarrassing. I don’t think that, I’m very focused on Spurs’ ambition and I am very pleased to play for Spurs’’.
