Tottenham tipped to finished above Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur has been tipped by former boss Harry Redknapp to finish above third in the Premier League.

Tottenham haven't had a bright start this season but Redknapp is backing his backing the north London club to beat the likes of Chelsea in third place in the Premier League standings. Spurs are currently ninth on the log, having only registered two wins in their last five matches. However, Redknapp feels that Spurs have a superior squad to the likes of Chelsea FC and Arsenal and he is tipping them to finish third in the table behind Liverpool FC and Manchester City.

"They should be finishing in the top three with that squad, that’s where they should be, there’s no doubt about that in my opinion. To get to a Champions League final was great for them. It was great to see them reach the final," he told Daily Mail. 

"At the start of the year, I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, a lot closer. Tottenham have got a great team, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, [Heung-min] Son – I thought this could be their year. But it’s been a disappointing start for them for sure and they need to turn it around quickly, but I still think they’ll finish third."

"But they’ve got the best stadium in the country, the best training ground. It’s all in place. They’ve got a great group of players. It’s some squad, if you go through it, I don’t care what anybody says I don’t think there’s a lot between that squad and Liverpool’s and Man City’s squad, I really don’t."

The Blues are currently fifth on the log with 14 points, three ahead of Spurs.
