Andre Villas-Boas plays down pressure.
Spurs secured their first win of the Premier League campaign on Sunday thanks to a brace from striker Jermain Defoe in the 3-1 victory over Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
Tottenham host Lazio at White Hart Lane in their first game of the Europa League group stages on Thursday and the north London outfit will be keen to make a strong start.
Villas-Boas has already come under some criticism for his management of the team but the Portuguese tactician has insisted he is comfortable in his position at Spurs.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "It is not true that in recent weeks I have felt the pressure of the club.
"On the contrary: I have a daily relationship with chairman Levy.
"We survey the development of our programmes in perfect harmony."
Spurs can now be backed at 3.10 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season and at 1.005 to clinch a top-six spot.
