Peter Crouch admits Spurs missed an opportunity to pull away from Liverpool earlier in the season.
Liverpool are now one point ahead of Spurs and occupy the fourth Champions League spot in the Premier League.
“There was an opportunity earlier in the season,” said Crouch.
“We had a couple of draws and it was frustrating we couldn’t pull away more. But I still feel we have enough ability. You look around the dressing room at the players who aren’t playing and there is so much quality here. I still believe we have a real opportunity.”
“The previous seasons don’t lie,” Crouch said about Liverpool.
“They have always been in the Champions League. They had a blip at the start of the season and people said other people can get in there but if I’m honest if you want to get in the Champions League then Liverpool will be the toughest side to displace.
“We have to make sure we are in there and in a position to do that.”
“You think one team is cementing the fourth spot, then they lose and another team wins,” Crouch said.
“It’s going to be really tight until the end of the season, we have to make sure we are close enough right to the end.
“I believe we have enough. The manager strengthened in January with a couple of signings to add to the squad and I think we have enough ability. We have a big squad with international players who can come in and play in different positions. I’m sure we will be strong enough.”
