King: Top four the minimum

Spurs have enjoyed a fine run since losing their opening two games
of the season and are well-placed to secure a return to Europe’s
premier competition as they head into Christmas. Thursday’s 1-1
draw with Chelsea kept Harry Redknapp’s men ahead of the Blues, as
well as Arsenal and Liverpool, in what is expected to be a tight
battle for the remaining spots in the top four behind Manchester
City and United. King, 31, said: “We’ll definitely be disappointed
if we don’t finish in the top four from here. We are more than
capable of that with the squad we’ve got. “Confidence is very high
after the past three months. “We’re going out on to the pitch every
week believing we can beat everyone and our football is backing up
that belief.” King added: “Maybe the pressure is not on us as much
as some of the other teams. “I think we’ve surprised a few with the
35 points we’ve got from our first 16 games. “We’re enjoying
ourselves but we’ve got to keep this going for another 22 games.”
King is confident Tottenham can maintain their current high level
until the end of the campaign, having taken four points from tricky
games against Sunderland and Chelsea over the past week. “I thought
we looked tired in the second half against Chelsea,” he said. “We
had a tough game against Sunderland at the weekend and Chelsea are
a very physical side. “Every team suffers injuries and setbacks but
we have a strong squad with plenty of players who can do a good
job. “It’s very tight at the top but I’m confident we can keep
going and produce the results.”
