Lewis Holtby has warned Tottenham’s top-four rivals that confidence in the Spurs camp is higher than ever after their stunning second-half comeback against Manchester City.

The north Londoners scored three goals in six second-half minutes to wrap up a 3-1 win over the defending Premier League champions and keep their bid for Champions League qualification on track.

Spurs, who are fifth in the Premier League table, were boosted by the return to action of Gareth Bale, who scored his side’s third goal after recovering from an ankle injury.

And Holtby believes that Sunday’s dramatic triumph has given their hopes of a top-four finish a timely boost.

“We have got players back like Gareth and Jermain, who both scored, so the belief in the team is high,” Holtby said. “It was a massive boost and it will put some pressure on Chelsea.

“After a win like that I think the confidence is really going up and with Aaron Lennon coming back, too, I hope this week we are going to be even stronger.

“I have just mentioned three guys who are among the top players in the Premier League. They have just come back for us so that is a massive boost. We have to keep the momentum up.”
