Harry Redknapp thinks ‘something is wrong’ if Tottenham fail to finish in the top four this season, as he told talkSPORT.
The former Premier League boss added ‘I’ll tell the truth’ in the sense that he thinks Tottenham have had an easier game recently.
There has been a string of home games for Conte’s side in recent weeks, including a 2-2 draw against Liverpool, as well as progressing to the semi-finals of the League Cup by beating West Ham.
But they went on tour on Tuesday and they scored a 1-1 draw against Southampton, despite the hosts being reduced to 10 men at half-time.
Despite this, Conte is unbeaten in seven Premier League games, something no other Spurs manager has done in their first seven, as Redknapp shared his thoughts on the Italian and his chances of getting in. their top 4.
“I’ll tell the truth,” Redknapp said. “The games were tilted in their favor. They’ve had a lot of home games.
“And they have good players. Take a look at their team. They are entitled to be up there.
“But if they can’t finish in the top four with that team, then something is wrong.
“You look at the top of the year, the top three, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Then you’re looking at the real Man United or Tottenham. They have the power to push for a spot in the top four. “
With the COVID issues, leading to matches being postponed, it is difficult to gauge where the teams are and how they compare to those around them.
Tottenham are one of the teams with the most games in hand and are currently in sixth place – five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with two games in hand.
But one of the most important matches awaits Conte in January, including three against Chelsea and a north London derby.
If things don’t go their way, they could very well be knocked out of the EFL Cup and lose to the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal in the tournament.
But if they get past that, then Spurs will likely see themselves as strong contenders for those top four spots and add a trophy to their closet.
