Spurs boss Harry Redknapp says the battle with Arsenal for third place in the Premier League will go “right to the wire”.
Tottenham moved level on points with Arsenal following their 3-1 victory against Swansea at White Hart Lane on Sunday, but they sit in fourth place on goal difference.
We would love to get third – I would love to finish above Arsenal if I can.
Redknapp is targeting a third-place finish for his side in a bid to guarantee Champions League football next season, and has challenged his players to maintain the type of form they showed against the Swans. The win ended a run of five league games without a victory and Redknapp says they must win five of their remaining seven games if they are to achieve their aim.
He said: “I would take five (wins) now. If we get five we will have Champions League football next year I’m sure of that.
“It is hard to call where the results are going to come and who against and that is what makes it interesting.
“We would love to get third – I would love to finish above Arsenal if I can. If we get Champions League football we will all be delighted again.
“That is the key really, that is what we want – Champions League football next year at Tottenham.”
