“Once they can get to where Pochettino wants them, if they can then be consistent, that’s what’s going to come down to: if they can consistently perform to that level," the former Arsenal striker told The Sun.
"They will need Harry Kane scoring, they will need midfielders backing him up scoring, all sorts of things need to happen for Spurs, but I think that Spurs are on the right track.”
Tottenham are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 14 points from nine matches, just three points behind fourth-place West Ham United.
The North London outfit are very much in the running for a top-four finish this season, especially with Chelsea struggling for points at the moment.
There has been progress at Tottenham under head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who now has a squad in his own image.
Last season Spurs ended up fifth in the Premier League, and this term they are aiming to go higher.
Pochettino’s message seems to be getting across to his players, and if England international striker Harry Kane starts firing on all cylinders, then they will certainly be more confident of a top-four finish.
