thumbnail Hello,

The 64-year-old coach is wary that any dip in performance could let a rival in as he feels there is little to choose between the six teams vying for Champions League qualification

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has warned his players that their form cannot afford to drop if they are to realize their ambitions of finishing in the Premier League top four.


“When you look at the table it just shows you how tight it is going to be at the top," Redknapp told skysports.com. “There is still nothing between us, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City - although City have pulled away a little bit."

“It has been a fantastic run of results for us since the start of September.

Eight wins in their last nine games have seen Spurs climb to third in the table, but the 64-year-old is wary of losing the initiative to their rivals.

“In my opinion, any side with top-four aspirations needs to try to maintain that kind of form for the majority of the season - as much as maybe two points a game over the course of the campaign.”

Redknapp steered Spurs to the Champions League places in the 2009-10 season but could only manage fifth position in the previous campaign.

Tottenham’s next opportunity to extend their run of form comes at the Hawthorns on Saturday when they take on Roy Hodgson’s West Brom.
