The ex-Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is still pronouncing that Spurs will finish above Arsenal, despite his departure from White Hart Lane this summer. Redknapp threw away a massive lead over Arsenal at the end of last season and ultimately lost out on a place in the Champions League, but he still thinks Arsene Wenger’s team will struggle again in the Premier League this time around.
Redknapp was asked for his predictions on the coming season and he said: “I suppose City will be favourites and then Man Utd, Chelsea and Tottenham again,”
“Arsenal will be in for a tough season this year if they lose Van Persie, I think they’ve got it all to do and Tottenham could finish above them this year.
“Sir Alex Ferguson will want to win a trophy this year and they’ll push Man City all the way.
“I think Liverpool will do better. People say there’s a long rebuilding process going on at the club, but they’ll be there. They’ve got fantastic players in my opinion – [Luis] Suarez, [Andy] Carroll, [Steven] Gerrard, [Jamie] Carragher, Glen Johnson, a great goalkeeper in Pepe Reina and some good central defenders. They should be pushing for the top four.
“If Alan Pardew gets Newcastle into the top five again, top six even, it will be a miracle. He’ll do well if they finish seventh or eighth this year.”
All Arsenal fans know that Redknapp says that Arsenal will struggle every single year, but in the end they ALWAYS finish above Tottenham. Hasn’t he learnt his lesson yet?
