Tottenham's Holtby admits Everton draw top four blow

Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby admits their draw with Everton was a blow to their top four hopes.

Holtby, drafted in to replace the injured Aaron Lennon, admits the draw was a blow, but still backed the team to come through.

The German said: "It was a good performance in the second half but if we want to play in the Champions League, we want to win those games.

"We've still got decisive games against Manchester City at home and away at Chelsea.

"It's about professionalism, and playing at a big club. If you play a lot of games in your career, you get that calmness as well.

"If you look at the whole season, all the effort we have put in, I think we deserve [to qualify for the Champions League] but it's got to be done at the end."
