Andre Villas-Boas is confident his Tottenham side will “do things right” in their remaining eight league games as they look to secure a top-four finish.

The north Londoners suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats before the international break to allow fifth-placed Arsenal to close the gap to their neighbours back to four points.

Tottenham travel to Swansea City on Saturday afternoon looking to take a step closer to Champions League qualification.

And although the Portuguese coach admits his side were “down” following their losses to Liverpool and Fulham, the Spurs boss is confident they will bounce back in the run-in.

“We feel down for the results we had recently, but we can’t forget that it was the players’ ambition that put us in the position we’re enjoying,” said Villas-Boas.

“We were in a situation of pressure before that but we handled it well.

“The lads showed tremendous commitment to do things right, so that leaves us confident for the eight matches remaining.”

Tottenham’s top-four rivals Arsenal host Reading at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
