Gylfi Sigurdsson is hoping Arsenal will slip up in their remaining two games to let Tottenham back into the race for Champions League qualification.

Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday left Tottenham in fifth place in the Premier League table and a point behind the Gunners with just two games left to play.

Andre Villas-Boas’s men can move back above their north London rivals if they can beat Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal, meanwhile, host Wigan Atletic next week before travelling to Newcastle United on the final day of the season.

And Sigurdsson, who netted Tottenham’s second equaliser at Stamford Bridge in midweek, is hoping that Spurs’ Champions League hopes are still not over.

“We’ve got two games left and Arsenal have two tough games, hopefully we’ll get six points and that will be enough,” he said.

“We’ve got Stoke and Sunderland; we have to make sure we’re ready on Sunday and try to get the three points.”
