Totteham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has called for his side to put the final nail in Manchester City's faint Premier League title hopes and thrust themselves back into Champions League contention.

Andre Villas-Boas' side have not played since their Europa League exit at the hands of Swiss outfit Basel just over a week ago, and have seen both Chelsea and Arsenal move ahead of them in the race for a top four finish since then.

Spurs can climb back into fourth spot should results go their way in Arsenal's Saturday afternoon clash with Fulham, but full back Walker has urged his side to concentrate on their own job and claim three points against Roberto Mancini side.

"It was disappointing to go out of the Europa League how we did last week but we have to put it behind us now," Walker told his club's official website.

"We've got a job to do in the Premier League and that's to qualify for Champions League football, that's what every player wants and we know that's what the fans all want as well.

"We need the fans right behind us and hopefully we can get the three points. It will be difficult. City have world-class players throughout, match winners, but we've a tremendous team as well and we all need to pull together to get the result."

Just one win in their last four Premier League games has seen a Spurs side, who at one point looked capable of challenging Manchester City for second place, sucked into an enthralling fight for a top four spot.

Manchester City meanwhile will arrive at the Lane on the back of two excellent results, a win over Manchester United at Old Trafford and an FA Cup semi-final victory over Chelsea. Spurs' in- form midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson anticipates a tough afternoon at the weekend, but points to his side's impressive record against the Premier League top sides as proof that they are ready for the arrival of Roberto Mancini's outfit.

"Sunday will be difficulty and everyone knows that," the Iceland international told Tottenham's website. "We've played well against the top teams, took four points off United, beat Arsenal at the Lane and we have to try and do the same against City.

"We have to keep fighting and try to get into that top four."
