Jan Vertonghen says Tottenham will dust themselves down following their Europa League exit and focus on a top-four finish.
The Belgian defender has been arguably our player of the season when you take Gareth Bale out of the equation and wants to finish the season on a high.
We now sit fifth in the table, with Chelsea in fourth and Arsenal third, although we are only one point behind our north London rivals with six games remaining.
“We have to stay together and to go for that top four place in the Premier League,” he told Tottenham’s official website.
“We have had a rest, we clear our heads and we come back against Manchester City [on Sunday].
“A lot of players could be coming back, important players and we only have big games now, City, Chelsea, all cup finals. We go for the highest place possible.”
“I hope it makes us stronger,” the 25-year-old added.
“You could see there was a team together on the pitch, we really fought for each other for 120 minutes.”
