Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects his team to have a stronger second half of the campaign and make a Champions League finish a reality.

Spurs travel to Sunderland on Saturday fourth in the Premier League, level on points with West Brom and Everton, and three clear of their North London rivals Arsenal who have one game in hand.

Villas-Boas said: "At the moment everyone is packed together, which is very dangerous.

"What we want to do is have a stronger second half to the season than last year.

"We have to continue our progress to hopefully open a gap between us and the rest of the teams that sit near the top.

"Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United will compete for the title between them.

"For the top four Everton are there, Liverpool will come back strongly definitely and there is always a surprise team.

"Last year it was Newcastle, this year it is West Brom. What you want is to finally settle into the top four, opening up some kind of gap if possible."
