Sigurdsson claims Race for Champions League is far from over

Gylfi Sigurdsson Tottenham midfielderTottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson believes that the battle for Champions League qualification will go down to the wire.

Spurs face Arsenal in the North London derby this weekend, with many speculating that the winner of the clash will be favourites to book a spot in next season’s competition.

The White Hart Lane club are currently four points clear of their rivals, and have a chance of finishing ahead of Chelsea in third spot.

Sigurdsson feels that the battle for the top four positions is far from being decided, and that Tottenham must focus on picking up results:

“It is going to be a massive game for us,” he is quoted by Sky Sports.

“However, anything is possible in football. The league was won in the last minute on the last day, so even if we beat them it is not finished.

“First, though, we have to beat them to start thinking about that. It will be a great atmosphere. Hopefully we can get a win and stay above Chelsea.”

The Icelandic international went on to hint that missing out on Champions League football would make the campaign a disappointing one:

“We want to get in to the Champions League. That is our aim. If we achieve that, we want to finish as high as we can.”

Sigurdsson joined Tottenham from Hoffenheim last summer, after an impressive loan spell with Swansea.

He was expected to sign for Liverpool, but the Londoners made a late swoop to take him to White Hart Lane.
