Parker insists Spurs will hold their nerve this season

Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker believes that his side have the capabilities to finish inside the top four this season, despite a bad run of recent form, The Mirror reports.

Spurs drew 0-0 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, which kept them five points clear of the fifth-placed Blues. However, North London rivals Arsenal beat Aston Villa 3-0 to move themselves into third place and create a three point gap over Spurs. Tottenham had threatened to open a 13 point lead over Arsenal a month ago, but failed to capitalise on the advantage and have been quickly caught up by the Gunners, who have won seven Premier League games in a row.

Parker believes that his side have enough to finish in the Champions League spots this season and will ride out this form, picking up wins as the season reaches its crunch time. The England international is expected to feature against Bolton on Tuesday night in the FA Cup and will be hopeful of getting to Wembley this season, as well as finishing in the top four in his first season at White Hart Lane.

“At some point in the season, you are going to go through a bit of a bad patch; it’s just about how quickly you can come out of it. Our aim has always been top four and that is not going to change. We need to keep winning games. It’s about results now; it’s not about playing well”, Parker said.
