Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker says their season will be a failure if they miss out on Champions League qualification.

Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker says their season will be a failure if they miss out on Champions League qualification.

There is plenty of competition for a top-four finish yet Walker believes Spurs will have failed if they do not take one of those spots.

“Watching the Champions League does spur you on and qualifying for it is the minimum we should be aiming for,” he told the London Evening Standard. “We have fantastic players and, hopefully, we do get that top-four place.

“If we don’t, it will have been a disappointing season for us. Can we aim even higher than that? Why not? We’re right in the mix at the moment although it’s still early in the season. We need to keep playing as we have been and hopefully at the end of the year, we’ll still be right up there.

“When you look at our defence, the clean sheets we’ve been keeping as a back five have been fantastic. We just need to keep grinding out results and I’m sure the goals will come. We just need to get in the top four this year and, fingers crossed, we do it.”
