Ben Davies believes Tottenham are still in control of their own destiny in the Premier League top-four race and insists the side will respond to the disappointment of the last two results. 

Spurs host Leicester on Sunday and will be looking to get back to winning ways after drawing to Brentford and suffering defeat to Brighton a week prior. 

Both matches saw Spurs, who had been on fire in front of goal beforehand, produce flat displays as they lost ground to rivals Arsenal in the hunt for the final Champions League place. 

But Davies, who has been ever-present in a three-man defence under Antonio Conte, is confident Tottenham will put the recent results behind them, insisting they are focused on the game against the Foxes and the four cup finals beyond it.

He told the official Spurs website: “The last time we had a couple of bad results we went on a great run, hopefully, we can do that again. 

“Every time you go on a good run, teams will always change their tactics to make it difficult for you. That will happen.

“Now, it’s about how we deal with it and how we respond. We’re well aware that the last couple of results needed to be better and we’re focussed on putting it right.

“We know the importance of it, and we’re well aware of what needs to be done. It’s in our hands. We’ve big games coming up, matches where we know we need results.

“We have to go into them full of confidence. If you’d have given us this position six months ago, we’d have bitten your hand off, so we’re looking forward to it.”

Tottenham’s clash against Leicester is followed by a daunting trip to Premier League title-chasers Liverpool, before hosting Arsenal in a key match in the battle for fourth. 

They then welcome Burnley to North London before ending the campaign with a trip to an already-relegated Norwich on the final day. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs have faltered with their last two results, but they need to put that behind them with points and positions still up for grabs. That needs to start with a good display against Leicester this weekend, though, as they do not want to then go to Liverpool with more chasing to do.
