Harry Redknapp makes bold claim about Chelsea and Tottenham squads
The former Tottenham boss is a huge fan of Mauricio Pochettino's squad
Harry Redknapp has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have the best squad in the Premier League, adding that it is superior to Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.
Spurs have established themselves as genuine Premier League title contenders this season after an impressive run of results over the past couple of months.
Tottenham fought back from 2-0 down to rescue a 2-2 draw with title rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished in third place in the Premier League table last season and Spurs look on course to finish in the top two this term.
Chelsea are still clear of their London rivals in the title race despite beating the west London side 2-0 at White Hart Lane earlier this month.
Speaking to BT Sport about Tottenham’s squad, former Spurs boss Redknapp claimed that he wouldn’t swap Pochettino’s squad for Conte’s Chelsea outfit.
“For me, one to eleven, when they’re picking they’re best XI and the way they’re playing with that system at the moment, I wouldn’t swap that group for any other team, even Chelsea’s,” Redknapp said.
Tottenham signed five players in the summer transfer window, including Victor Wanyama in an £11m deal from Southampton.
