Midfielder Scott Parker insists Tottenham will not buckle under the pressure of trying to secure a top-four finish this season.
The north Londoners looked like qualifying for this season's Champions League but fell away badly towards the end of last season - a run of form that ultimately led to the departure of boss Harry Redknapp.
They have been there or thereabouts for the majority of this campaign but are currently two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with just four games to go.
However, they do have a game in hand on the Gunners and victory in all their remaining fixtures would see Andre Villas-Boas' charges return to Europe's elite club competition.
It has been suggested in some sections of the press that they might fold under pressure once again, but Parker is confident that he and his team-mates will be able to handle the stress of the end-of-season run-in and actually thrive in the pressure cooker atmosphere.
"I think people will always ask whether we can handle the pressure and put those questions to us because of what happened in the past, but I don't think there is anything psychological happening in the changing room," he said.
"I think we are showing character. I don't know what the stats are but apart from Man United, I think we might be one of the best teams at coming back from losing positions."
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Spurs to finish in the top four and they are next in action against Southampton on May 4.
