Jamie Redknapp has warned Arsenal that Tottenham will be one of their main competitors for the Premier League title next season.

Arsenal are currently gearing up for their crunch clash against Spurs at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon as they look to try and keep their Premier League top-four hopes alive.

Tottenham head into that game knowing that victory would confirm their first finish above their local rivals in the table for 22 years.

Spurs have been in superb form this season and are Chelsea’s closest challengers for the Premier League title, with the Lilywhites currently four points behind the leaders in the table.

And former Spurs midfielder Redknapp feels that Tottenham are likely to be one of the main challengers for the title again next season.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: “Arsenal still have the FA Cup final to come, and winning that trophy again will be a great achievement.

“But in 2017-18 Arsenal need to be back competing for the title. And Tottenham will be one of their chief competitors.”
