Pavlyuchenko: Team spirit will drive Tottenham to Champions League qualification

Roman Pavlyuchenko feels Tottenham's tight-knit team can help drive the squad on towards Champions League qualification and FA Cup glory. The 28 year old looked to be on his way out of White Hart Lane and back to Russia before suddenly finding himself once more in Harry Redknapp's plans - and he has responded with nine goals in as many games.

The former Spartak Moscow forward is enjoying life on the pitch again, and has paid tribute to the tight-knit team unit Redknapp has woven together.

"My goals should be credited to the whole team and not just myself," he said.

"I am presented with the chances and all I am trying to do is capitalise on them.

"The team itself has progressed immensely and we are a much better team compared to last year.

"In terms of the spirit we are almost like one family and that definitely contributes to the success we are enjoying at the moment."

"We are trying to become the number four team in the table this year, which opens the road to the Champions League," he said.

"There are only two months left and we have to keep winning to finish the job.

"We still have to play the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

"These are difficult teams. But in football anything can happen, and any team can be a surprise."
