After an outstanding first half of the 2011-12 season, Tottenham have recently struggled for form, going five matches without a win in the top flight.

Their slump has allowed Arsenal, who have put together seven straight Premier League victories, to leapfrog them into third, with eight matches of the campaign remaining.

Saha, though, is confident Spurs have the ability to shine again: "It is football, with lots of paradox and things can quickly change.

"Arsenal have had a run so they are confident. They are in the front seat, they are in a good position but it doesn't mean we cannot do the same.

"We have shown consistency during the season. We may have dropped a few points during the past weeks but we have shown that we have closed the gap in terms of our performances.

"We definitely have players with experience like Emmanuel Adebayor, William Gallas and Rafael van der Vaart, who has won lots of things, so I think that experience is on our side."
