Manager Harry Redknapp was defiant when asked about Spurs’ chances of making the top four this season following Saturday’s disappointing 2-2 home draw with West Brom.
Speaking before last night’s game at Ewood Park between Blackburn and Manchester City, Harry said: “It’s going to be difficult but it’s still all to play for.”
It would appear however, that if we don’t qualify then it’s City’s cash and not our failure to beat the bottom sides that will be blamed.
“I find it hard that now everyone expects us to be in the Champions League,
“Tottenham had never been in it before until this season and suddenly it is like ‘we have to be in the Champions League’.
“Manchester City have gone out and spent God knows what to get above us. Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are there every year, Liverpool will be there next year. It’s difficult to get fourth. It has been a great season but it’s not over yet.”
City’s win last night stretched their lead to four points with just five games left for both sides in the 2010-11 campaign.
