Harry Redknapp believes a place in the top three to be possible this season, let alone fourth place.

Spurs brushed aside Manchester City with ease on Wednesday, a performance that Redknapp described as Spurs’ best of the season.

And Redknapp believes that both Arsenal and Liverpool could find their place in the Champions League under threat.

“I’ve said since the start of the season that the champions will come from Chelsea or Manchester United, but after that it’s all up for grabs.

“Anything is possible this season. Look at Arsenal, you would have expected them to go up and win at Burnley after beating Liverpool, but they didn’t so that shows you how hard it’s going to be.”

Fans booed Spurs off the pitch after the weekend’s home defeat to Wolves, with the media also claiming that result meant Spurs would not end up in the top four this season.

But Redknapp felt the reaction to that result was over-the-top and that their challenge is still very much on.

“People over-react to one result. One defeat and you’re finished, out of the race. People say ‘same old Tottenham, they’re going to fall flat on the face.’ Players who are great one day are useless the next – it’s unbelievable, but that’s how the game has gone unfortunately.

“We’ve been consistent. People go on about no win in three matches, but in the draws at Everton and Villa, our performances were very good.

“A lot of teams would be very happy with a point away at Everton and Villa. It’s possible for us this year, we just have to keep picking up results.”
