Harry Redknapp predicts where Chelsea will finish
The former Tottenham manager is backing Chelsea to win the Premier League title despite Saturday's loss to Crystal Palace
Harry Redknapp is confident Chelsea will still finish the season as Premier League champions despite their setback against Crystal Palace.
The Blues started the weekend with an impressive record of one defeat in their last 22 games in the English top flight to leave Chelsea 10 points clear at the top of the table.
But Crystal Palace sealed a surprise 2-1 win against Chelsea thanks to goals from Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke in the ninth and eleventh minute.
The west London side are still seven points clear of their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the title race after Spurs were 1-0 winners at Burnley.
Former Portsmouth and Tottenham manager Redknapp believes Chelsea will still ease to their first Premier League title under Antonio Conte despite Saturday afternoon’s setback.
“Chelsea are still the red-hot favourites but anything can happen. [But] you can’t seen Chelsea losing too many games really,” Redknapp told BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show.
Chelsea finished in tenth place in the Premier League table last term under Guus Hiddink before the appointment of Conte as their new boss.
The Blues will host Manchester City in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
