Harry Redknapp is convinced Tottenham Hotspur could win the Premier League title if they can continue their current run of good form.

Spurs enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Monday night at White Hart Lane, with Emmanuel Adebayor scoring twice in the first half.

The win moved Redknapp’s side into third place ahead of Newcastle United – and having played a game less than both the Manchester clubs, the Tottenham manager’s thoughts are now turning to a possible title challenge.

“The title is a possibility. It’s not impossible,” said Redknapp, who returned to the dugout on Monday following a minor heart operation. “When I came here I said I wanted to get in the Champions League.

“It’s not impossible for anyone. If you keep winning matches and believe in yourself you’ll do it.

“Last season Manchester United won it because everyone fell over. If we keep up the form we’re in at the moment we’ll win the league, but that will be very hard.”

Redknapp also expects playmaker Luka Modrić to be offered a new deal by the club to ensure the Croatia international remains at White Hart Lane.

“I’m sure the chairman will do a new deal and look after him. Hopefully that will happen,” Redknapp said.

“You’ve got to look after him, he’s a top, top player. If he’s worth £40m, then he must be worth decent wages. “He has to be on good money because he’s a fantastic player.”
