First or second out of reach so Tottenham targeting fourth spot says Chadli

Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli has revealed that the north London club are only targeting fourth spot on the Premier League table.

Spurs sit fifth, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, following a run of seven wins from 10 matches since December.

Following Wednesday night's 4-0 demolition of Newcastle United, Belgium international Chadli believes that perhaps league leaders Chelsea and second-placed Arsenal are too far ahead but the Reds are certainly within their grasp.

"We are not looking at first or second place, we are just looking at the team in front of us - Liverpool," he said after scoring his first Premier League goal.

"We have to keep playing like we did at Newcastle and keep going in every game for 100 per cent to get the three points. With five games to go, we will see where we are.

"We are not looking to go above Chelsea. We are looking at Liverpool, who are directly above us and we have to go there in a few weeks, so that will be a big examination.

"We are within touching distance of the top. We have had a good week, but in one week everything can happen, everything can change.

"We can be up or we can be down, so we have to stay alert and play our game like we did at Newcastle, although I would say everything is possible this season.

"It is a very different league this season, because a lot of teams are taking points off each other and are playing at around the same level."
