Harry Redknapp has labelled Liverpool as the favourites to claim the final Champions League spot this season, but has still claimed that Tottenham have a ‘big chance’.
Spurs dropped to fifth over the weekend after being held to a goalless draw by Aston Villa, whilst Liverpool won their derby match with Everton.
The race for fourth place has thrown a number of curveballs at the sides involved, with Manchester City also losing at Hull on Saturday.
And Redknapp has acknowledged how unpredictable the season has been, but remains confident that his side have a chance of gate-crashing the Champions League party.
He told Sky Sports, “We’re still right there. Manchester City got beat at Hull on Saturday. It’s hard to win games, it’s not easy.
“We’ve been in great form. We have had one defeat in 12 games now. I can’t complain.
“We’ve have been good to watch. We have played some great football. Everyone is at the peak of their form, so we have got a big chance still.
“There is no guarantee we are going to make it, it is going to be difficult and we know that.
“Liverpool are back in. At the start of the year, nobody would have seen them outside the top four so it is going to be hard to finish above them to start with.
“But we are in there with a chance, which is good.
“I would say they (Liverpool) probably are favourites.
“Ourselves, City, Villa are all there pushing. It is going to be tight, but we have still got a big chance.”
