Eidur Gudjohnsen believes Tottenham are good enough to qualify for the UEFA Champions League after a crucial win against North London rivals Arsenal in midweek.
The vastly experienced striker, who has already lifted domestic titles with European giants Chelsea, Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven, reckons that Harry Redknapp's side can build on their first league win in 21 attempts against the Gunners and qualify for Europe's premier club competition.
However, the on-loan Monaco forward is concerned that Tottenham's self-confidence will be tested as Harry Redknapp's young squad chase fourth place.
Gudjohnsen told the Mirror: "Quality wise, yes. This club is ready for Champions League football.
"Whether we look on ourselves as big enough players, big enough personalities to say: 'Yes, we should be a Champions League side' - that is the question we have to ask ourselves."
Tottenham's home form in the Premier League this season has been impressive, Redknapp's men have only lost three league games at White Hart Lane this season, and has been pivotal in their chase for fourth place.
Spurs are amongst the highest goalscorers in the league too, but Gudjohnsen knows that records are meaningless as the season comes to a close.
He added: "As for us, to prove we belong in the Champions League we will have to finish fourth. It's as simple as that.
"We showed against Arsenal that we can beat all of the top teams if everyone performs well. Heurelho Gomes pulled off some incredible saves towards the end and it all came together in a great win for us.
"You get what you deserve after a season. We've got a big chance, a big opportunity. We've got a difficult run-in but the more difficult the games the better."
