Harry Redknapp has warned Chelsea that Tottenham could be set to run them very close in the Premier League title race.

Spurs managed to close the gap to the leaders down to seven points on Saturday when their 2-0 win at Burnley allowed them to capitalise on Chelsea’s shock 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham have been in good form in recent weeks and will look to keep up their title bid when they travel to Swansea City this week.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are facing the stern test of taking on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side at Stamford Bridge.

And although former Spurs boss Redknapp is expecting Chelsea to win the title, he admits that the title race could be blown wide open in the coming weeks.

Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show on Saturday, Redknapp said: “Tottenham could keep this run going. There’s nothing to stop them winning six or seven games on the trot. It can all turn. It could turn this week. You never know.”
