Jamie Redknapp says Tottenham Hotspur aren’t good enough to win the Premier League title this season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side moved to within a point of north London rivals and fourth-placed Arsenal thanks to a 4-1 victory over West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Sunday evening.

The current Tottenham squad equalled a club record thanks to their impressive derby win after going 12 games unbeaten in the Premier League since a 1-0 loss to Manchester United on the opening day of the season.

However, former Spurs skipper Redknapp believes Pochettino’s men should aim for a top-four finish, insisting Tottenham aren’t ready to win the Premier League title – yet.

“I don’t think they can win the title, but I think they should aim for top four,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“I just don’t think they’re good enough and there are much better teams. Without taking anything away from what they’re doing here because it’s fantastic, but I don’t think they’re ready to win the league yet. They’ll have good spells with these young players and they’ll have dips in form, but they can definitely make the top four.”

Harry Kane broke the deadlock in Sunday’s London derby in the 23rd minute before Spurs centre-half Toby Alderweireld added a second for the hosts.

The Tottenham striker added a third after half-time before Kyle Walker sealed three points despite Manuel Lanzini’s late goal for the Hammers.
