Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted it would be "tough" to overhaul rivals Arsenal to claim third place in the Barclays Premier League after their 2-1 home defeat to Norwich dented their Champions League ambitions.

The Canaries - who are now all but guaranteed top flight survival with 43 points - went ahead through Anthony Pilkington and were then denied what looked a clear penalty for a foul by Ledley King on Grant Holt after which Spurs levelled through Jermaine Defoe before the Norfolk side went on to claim all three points through a 20-yard strike from Elliott Bennett.

Redknapp said: "We would settle for finishing fourth, Champions League football is the key. It would be lovely to finish above Arsenal, but that is going to be tough now."
