Harry Redknapp is backing Tottenham to beat the likes of Chelsea FC to finish in third place in the Premier League table.

The north London side have made a stuttering start to the new campaign and they currently find themselves down in ninth place in the table after having won just two of their last five games.

Tottenham have 11 points to their name and they currently sit 13 points behind leaders Liverpool FC after eight games of the new campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino will be focused on guiding Tottenham back up the table and into the top four in the coming weeks in the lead-up to the hectic festive period in the Premier League.

Spurs will be aiming to at least secure qualification for next season’s Champions League after many tipped them to challenge for the title this term.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, are currently in fifth place in the table and three points ahead of Pochettino’s men as Frank Lampard also looks to keep the Blues in the top four this term.

However, Redknapp feels that Spurs have a superior squad to the likes of Chelsea FC and Arsenal and he is tipping them to finish third in the table behind Liverpool FC and Manchester City.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mail, Redknapp said: “They should be finishing in the top three with that squad, that’s where they should be, there’s no doubt about that in my opinion.

“To get to a Champions League final was great for them. It was great to see them reach the final.

“At the start of the year I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, lot closer.

“Tottenham have got a great team, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, [Heung-min] Son – I thought this could be their year.

“But it’s been a disappointing start for them for sure and they need to turn it around quickly, but I still think they’ll finish third.

“But they’ve got the best stadium in the country, the best training ground. It’s all in place.

“They’ve got a great group of players.

“It’s some squad, if you go through it, I don’t care what anybody says I don’t think there’s a lot between that squad and Liverpool’s and Man City’s squad, I really don’t.”

Tottenham will return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Watford on Saturday.
