Harry Redknapp still convinced Tottenham Hotspur will finish third
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is confident his side will still secure a top-three finish - despite Sunday's defeat by Manchester United
Harry Redknapp remains confident Tottenham Hotspur will secure a third-place finish this season – despite his side being condemned to successive league defeats by Manchester United on Sunday.
Wayne Rooney handed United the lead at White Hart Lane against the run of play just before half-time, before Ashley Young cemented the visitors’ advantage with a spectacular quick-fire double after the interval.
Substitute Jermain Defoe managed to score a late consolation for Spurs – but the defeat means Arsenal are now just four points behind Redknapp’s men in the table.
“We’re still in pole position although that 10-point lead has suddenly become four points,” said Redknapp after the game.
“We’ve got some hard games coming up, we go to Everton and we’ve got Chelsea away – so we’ve got some tough games to come.
“But I still feel we and go on a run and I still fancy us to finish third.”
