Harry Redknapp delivers verdict on Tottenham ahead of Chelsea clash
Harry Redknapp looks ahead to Tottenham's crunch clash with Chelsea this weekend
Harry Redknapp believes that Chelsea will be the clear favourites when they take on Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday night.
The Blues have been in sensational form in recent weeks and are currently one point clear at the top of the Premier League table following a run of solid results.
Chelsea have earned plenty of praise for their performances under new boss Antonio Conte this season.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have been struggling for form in recent weeks and slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to Monaco on Tuesday night to end their Champions League hopes.
Spurs were 3-2 winners over West Ham United last weekend but former Tottenham boss Redknapp feels that the Lilywhites have gone off the boil of late.
Redknapp is quoted as saying by Metro: “Tottenham seem to have really lost their spark, even though they are unbeaten in the league, they got away with it last week, so it is a good time for Chelsea to be playing Tottenham.
“Danny Rose [being] suspended is a big loss for Tottenham this weekend.”
Chelsea finished 10th in the Premier League and without a trophy last season after a disastrous campaign.
Tottenham, meanwhile, ended up third in the table behind Arsenal and Leicester City.
