Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood reckons the race for fourth spot in the Premier League will go down to the wire, after watching his side cruise past Newcastle United at St James’s Park, reports the Daily Mirror.
Tottenham kept the gap between themselves and fourth placed Liverpool at three points after thrashing Newcastle 4-0, with Emmanuel Adebayor firing another two goals.
Sherwood said: “It is very tight at the top. I see it going down to the last month of the season, that’s for sure. It’s going to be tough for everyone to maintain the run that we’re all having. We seem to be not climbing above anyone at the moment. Liverpool are doing excellent and we’ve just got to make sure we keep breathing down their necks.
“Liverpool are up there at the moment and you would say they’re favourites but we think we can put a charge together. We’ve got to believe in that. We know how difficult it’s going to be, but it’s not only Liverpool, there are other teams within this race.”
On goal-hero Adebayor, Sherwood said:
“We’re always asking for more but I’m not sure we’re going to achieve that at the moment. He’s at the top of his game.
“He’s a real credit to the football club and at this present moment in time he’s an example for all our young players to look up to, someone who applies himself on and off the pitch the training field, he never leaves anything on the training field, he works very very hard and it mirrors that when he steps on to the pitch.”
