Jermaine Jenas insists Tottenham will not crack under the pressure of trying to secure UEFA Champions League football.
The race for the final qualifying place is very much reaching its climax and currently, Tottenham command a four point advantage over North London rivals Arsenal and an in-form Blackburn side.
Tottenham's remaining fixtures may be unenviable, as they face Everton, Arsenal and West Ham away, while hosting Manchester United and Bolton, but Jenas remains confident they will keep their calm in what will be a close run-in.
The World Cup hopeful appreciates that a chasing Arsenal side represent a real threat and while acknowledging it will be far from easy, Jenas still believes fourth place will be secured.
''We know Arsenal are a good side and we don't expect a team like them to drift and fade away into the background,'' he told the Daily Mirror.
''But the most important thing is that we concentrate on ourselves and maintain our form.
''There is a long way to go yet. It's quite possible that we might have to win all five of our remaining games to make it.
''Arsenal are in great form but we must stay focused if we're going to finish above them and the likes of Blackburn and Bolton.
''We're trying to make our ground a bit of a fortress.''
