Jamie Redknapp believes Tottenham Hotspur will finish in fourth place even if Spurs lose to Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men will make the short trip across the English capital to Stamford Bridge in a vital battle in the top-four race.

Spurs can moved eight points clear of Chelsea FC if Tottenham are able to secure their first win at Stamford Bridge since 1990.

If the defending Premier League champions manage to beat Spurs in Sunday’s late kick-off, Tottenham’s lead will be cut to two points.

Chelsea FC were 2-1 winners against Tottenham at Wembley in their second Premier League game of the season thanks to Marcos Alonso’s two goals.

The title holders have lost four of their last six Premier League games, while Tottenham will be hoping to remain unbeaten for a seventh successive top-flight fixture.

Former Spurs midfielder Redknapp believes Tottenham will still finish above Chelsea FC in the current campaign.

“For Chelsea, it’s a must-win,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“If that gap stretches to eight points, it will be too big a gap to come back from.

“To be honest, I think even if Spurs were to lose, I’d still expect them to qualify for the Champions League ahead of Chelsea. They’re in a healthier state right now and have the edge.”

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season after the west London outfit finished seven points ahead of Tottenham.

The Blues signed Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, AS Roma defender Emerson Palmieri and Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window.
