Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham are still in with a big chance of securing a top-four finish this season – and feels Spurs could still finish above Arsenal.

The Lilywhites are currently seventh in the Premier League table and six points behind leaders Liverpool and second-placed Arsenal heading into the hectic festive fixture schedule.

Arsenal are only six points above Tottenham. That’s nothing. That can be wiped out in a week

And QPR boss Redknapp is convinced that Tottenham are still in with a good chance of catching up with Arsene Wenger’s men after Spurs appointed Tim Sherwood as manager following Andre Villas-Boas’ dismissal.

“I thought Tottenham were absolute certainties to finish above Arsenal at the start of the season,” former Spurs manager Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“Then Arsenal lost their first game of the season, but they have done fantastic since then. But they are only six points above Tottenham. That’s nothing. That can be wiped out in a week, so Tottenham are still bang in there.

“They have a good squad. I think Tim will get the best out of them.

“I wouldn’t write Tottenham off for a top-four position, they have got as good a chance as the seven teams that will be scrapping it out until the end of the season.”
