Harry Redknapp believes that either Tottenham Hotspur or Liverpool will finish fourth in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea have been left with it all to do if they are to secure a top-four finish this season, with Jose Mourinho’s defending champions currently languishing in 15th place in the Premier League and 14 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Spurs head into Saturday’s north London derby clash with Arsenal in fifth place in the Premier League table and one point behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are a further three points behind in eighth place as Jurgen Klopp’s men prepare to take on Crystal Palace at Anfield on Sunday.

And former Tottenham boss Redknapp feels that the final top-four spot will be contested by Spurs and Liverpool this season.

Redknapp said on BT Sport: “I think it’s between Tottenham and Liverpool for that fourth spot.

“Chelsea obviously can still come back with the right results, but I think they have got a real chance this year of making the top four and getting back into the Champions League.”

Liverpool played in the Champions League last season after finishing second under Brendan Rodgers but were knocked out in the group stage.
