Harry Redknapp predicts where Arsenal and Chelsea will finish in title race

The former Spurs manager is backing Chelsea to win the title, while tipping Tottenham and Arsenal to finish in second third

Harry Redknapp is backing the London clubs to finish at the top of the Premier League table this season.

Chelsea are currently clear of their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Arsenal in the race to secure their second title in three seasons under different managers.

Antonio Conte’s side face competition from Tottenham after the Lilywhites played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.

Arsenal moved back into the top four last weekend after momentarily dropping down to fifth place following their 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Speaking to BT Sport about the Premier League title race, Redknapp revealed his prediction for the top three this season.

“I think the three London teams will finish in first, second and third – that’s my opinion,” Redknapp said.

Chelsea finished in tenth place in the Premier League table last season after a disappointing season under Jose Mourinho and his successor Guus Hiddink.
