Harry Redknapp: Tottenham Can Finish Above Arsenal

Spurs boss says he still wants Van Bommel.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes that his side can climb above Arsenal by the end of the season and added that only Manchester United and Chelsea are consistent enough to challenge for the title.

Although Spurs are eight points behind the Gunners, who are currently in second place, Redknapp is insisting that they may surprise their north London rivals.

"I still think it's quite open. Man City are a good side, but it's not impossible, it's not impossible to finish above Arsenal. It's tough, but it's not impossible,” Redknapp said according to the Mirror.

"When everybody's fit, when we get Bale and Modric back, we've got a good team. We're a good team without them, but we are a better team with them, obviously, because they are our strongest players.

"Arsenal and City have done great. I wouldn't and couldn't knock them. I'm just saying of all the teams that are there, if we are going to finish above any of them - out of the four teams - I think it would be one of those two.

"It's going to be hard but if we are going to do it I think it'd likely to be one of those two, rather than Chelsea or United.

"United have had a big January and picked up points. We've had a few draws and it's a bit tougher for us. But 10 points - you can't give them the points."
