Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas says the club have lost "decisive" points, which has slowed their progress during the end of their Premier League campaign.
Spurs lie in fifth place in the league, one point behind north-London rivals Arsenal, going into their final game against Sunderland.
Tottenham, who have lost just twice in 21 league games, know a win against the Black Cats and a loss for Arsenal at Newcastle will secure the fourth spot and Champions League football next season.
