Tottenham attacker Lucas Moura says belief is key to their pursuit of a top-four finish in the Premier League. 

Success over Crystal Palace on Sunday made it three consecutive top-flight wins in the space of a week for Spurs to boost their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. 

Jose Mourinho's side are firmly back in the mix after a poor run of results earlier in 2021 - where they lost five out of six league games and exited the FA Cup. 

On what has changed, Moura said: "I think the main thing was the mentality because we just needed to have the belief in ourselves. 

"We needed to know how good we are because we have terrific players, a very good squad and the quality in the Premier League to win games. When we realise that and we have confidence, we are able to dominate games."
