Kolo Toure remains confident that Manchester City will come out on top in the battle for fourth place.
Roberto Mancini's men looked favourites to secure the final UEFA Champions League berth prior to a dramatic weekend of action.
Tottenham wrestled the advantage their way on Saturday evening with a 2-1 victory over Chelsea, having earlier seen City lose 1-0 to Manchester United.
City now trail Spurs by two points with four games remaining and have a tricky run-in with fixtures against many of their rivals for Europe.
The key match is set to be at home to Tottenham on 5th May, with Toure looking to keep the pressure on until then.
"We are still on track," the Ivory Coast defender told Sky Sports News.
"There are some good teams like Tottenham, who are on fire at the moment, but the good thing is we have to play Arsenal, Aston Villa and then Tottenham at our ground, and we are going to make them work really hard."
Aston Villa and Liverpool appear outsiders in the race for fourth but Toure insists everything is still up for grabs and rejects the notion that Spurs are favourites.
"I don't think so because at the start of the season no one would have expected them to be where they are," Toure said about Spurs.
"At the moment they are doing really well but fourth place belongs to nobody yet.
"There is Aston Villa, Man City, Tottenham and maybe Liverpool, you never know.
"There are three games to go and the team that is going to be more confident and give everything and work really hard will be there."
Mancini promised that City would finish fourth after the derby defeat and Toure says the players share his confidence.
He stated: "Of course because when you see all the games we have played against all the big teams, we are not far from the top four.
"But we still need to work really hard as a team and believe in what we are doing."
