Harry Redknapp doesn’t expect Spurs to finish in the top four this season.
The Spurs boss believes that Chelsea will keep their place in the top four and it would be a big achievement if the club can qualify for Champions League football again.
This is despite the fact Spurs won last night and Chelsea could only manage a draw.
Redknapp said: “I picked the team yesterday morning and I lost two of them. Luka had a pain in his stomach and needed an appendix operation.
“As for Pienaar… the other South African (Bongani Khumalo) thought his head was the ball and knocked him unconscious in training. We had to change it again. We were an attacking team, an open team.
“For us to finish above them would be a real feat. They have spent about Â£70million in the transfer market. We have just got to keep going and it would be a fantastic achievement.
“I would not write Chelsea off from winning the championship. Although Manchester United look as though they keep getting results they are not playing as well as they have done in the past.
“They are red-hot favourites but Chelsea have won the championship and have Torres to come in. They could go on a run and be a big danger to everyone.”
