Harry Redknapp has challenged Tottenham Hotspur to overtake third-placed Arsenal – but admits that guaranteeing Champions League football for next season is the club’s main priority.

Spurs were contenders for the Premier League title but a poor sequence of results which saw Redknapp’s side manage just two victories in 10 games allowed north London rivals Arsenal to leapfrog them into third.

The 65-year-old, whose side face Swansea City at White Hart Lane on Sunday, is still targeting third spot but will be satisfied with qualifying for Europe’s premier competition.

“I want Champions League football, and I want to finish third if I can,” said Redknapp.

“That’s the aim: finishing third if we can do it.”

He added: “I’d be lying to you if I said I wouldn’t take fourth if it comes to it, but I would like to finish third.

“I feel finishing fourth would still be a great achievement from the players here.”
