Harry Redknapp believes Chelsea are still capable of finishing in the Premier League’s top four this season.

The Blues moved to within 11 points of fourth-placed Arsenal after a hard-fought 0-0 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s London derby at White Hart Lane.

The defending Premier League champions have endured a miserable start to the defence of their crown after securing 15 points from a possible 42 after 14 games.

However, former Tottenham manager Redknapp believes if Liverpool are considered as top-four contenders, then Chelsea must be considered in the race for the Champions League spots, too.

Ex-QPR boss Redknapp told BT Sport: “When you talk about the league, Liverpool are on 20 points. Would you say Liverpool can make the top four?

“Chelsea are on 15 points which isn’t a million miles of difference. They still have a great chance.”

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard had the best chance at The Lane after the Belgium international’s volley required a smart save from Hugo Lloris.
