Harry Redknapp has thrown down the gauntlet to opposite number Arsene Wenger in Tottenham's battle to beat Arsenal to third place in the Barclays Premier League, by roaring: "Bring it on, Arsene!"

Tottenham have now gone five league matches without a victory, but Saturday's performance in a goalless draw against Chelsea suggested that blip was about to end during a run-in that looks easier than that of their arch-rivals, who have Manchester City and Chelsea still to play.

Redknapp scoffed at suggestions that closing the three-point gap to the Gunners in third place may be beyond his side, saying: "No, it's not out of reach, of course not. I still think we'll finish above Arsenal - bring it on, Arsene!"
