Manchester United great Rio Ferdinand believes it would be a huge mistake to exclude Tottenham from the top four battle.
While Tottenham are a little further down the table, they are within touching distance of the top four or five teams in the league.
And Rio believes they are building momentum after a hard fought win over Fulham on Thursday night.
“It’s not about performances,” said Ferdinand on BT Sport.
“It’s about getting points on the board. They now have an achievable target of getting in the Champions League.”
“If they can get some consistency, three points, three points, they’re gonna be running people close,’ Ferdinand added.
“When you’ve got the front four with that talent, Spurs are gonna be a threat against anybody.
“They’re a team that have been kicked by pundits and the media because of inconsistency. Now they seem a team who’ve got momentum, looking above them saying “that’s not out of reach.” Imagine if they win the League Cup final as well.”
