Harry Redknapp calls for calm about Chelsea title talk
The former Spurs boss still has some reservations about Chelsea and their Premier League title bid
Harry Redknapp has revealed that he still has some reservations over Chelsea’s Premier League title challenge.
The Blues recorded a seventh successive Premier League win on Saturday evening thanks to a 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.
Christian Eriksen became the first player to score against Chelsea in the Premier League since Mesut Ozil’s strike in a 3-0 win against the Blues at the Emirates Stadium in September.
However, Chelsea were level on the stroke of half-time after former Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez curled a finish past Tottenham number one Hugo Lloris.
And Conte’s side eased into a second-half lead thanks to Victor Moses’ third Premier League goal of the 2016-17 season so far.
The west London outfit hoisted themselves above Liverpool and into second place courtesy of their London derby triumph.
Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, Redknapp addressed growing talk of Chelsea winning the title this term.
“They’ve got a strong team, Chelsea. They’re going to be bang up there challenging. But I’m not going to sit here and be convinced, and say that I really fancy them to win the league now,” Redknapp said.
“I think it’s wide open – there are six teams this year who could win the league. The winner will come from the big six: the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and the three London clubs.”
Chelsea will make the trip to title rivals Manchester City in their next Premier League fixture.
