Harry Redknapp believes that the race for fourth place will go to the wire this season and could even be decided when Spurs eventually travel to Eastlands. This would be a repeat of the 2009-10 campaign, when a Peter Crouch goal secured fourth slot for Spurs.
After a run of three league wins, Spurs have taken just two points from their last three Premier League games, all of which were against opposition threatened with relegation. In the meantime, Chelsea have improved to reach third place, but Manchester City have faltered, meaning they are still within our reach.
Speaking on the club website Harry said: “It’s going to be tight, but we’re playing very well, we’re in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and trying to get in the top four again.
“We knew getting fourth spot would be difficult at the start of the season, it always is, and it’s the same for Man City or anybody. But we’re still in there fighting.”
Spurs were originally scheduled to play at Eastlands on April 17th, but this was postponed due to City’s continued involvement in the FA Cup.
