Harry Redknapp says it would be a massive disappointment if Tottenham Hotspur missed out on the Premier League title.

The Lilywhites have surged up the Premier League table thanks to a run of six wins in seven top-flight games ahead of Saturday’s north London derby at White Hart Lane.

If you get this close to winning it, if you come second or third, the players must want to win it

Tottenham have only finished in the top four once during the Premier League era under Redknapp and Spurs haven’t won the top-flight crown since Bill Nicholson’s side were champions in 1961.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday morning ahead of the north London derby, former Tottenham manager Redknapp explained why Mauricio Pochettino’s side would be bitterly disappointed if they were unable to win the Premier League title this season.

“It would be a disappointment from here,” Redknapp said.

“At the start of the year, CL would have been fantastic. When they’ve got so close to winning it, they want to win it now.

“They’ve got the greatest chance. There are three teams in it. If you get this close to winning it, if you come second or third, the players must want to win it.”

Tottenham make the trip to Germany to face Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash on Thursday night.
