Spurs boss Harry Redknapp says the idea of playing in the Europa League fills him with dread.
“I think everyone that gets in it (the Europa League) wants to be out of it. They put reserve teams out every game,” Redknapp said.
“We want Champions League football again next year – it has been enjoyable and we want it.”
With only 13 games remaining, Redknapp knows his side are now entering a make-or-break period in their push for qualification.
He said: “It will be difficult to get into the top four.
“Liverpool are coming into it now so don’t write them off. They have some good players and are a good side.
“The manager has them playing and they will be close. Manchester United, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal – you have to finish above one of them.
“It won’t be easy but we have a chance. We have to keep winning, we can’t afford to slip up.”
