Redknapp: Tough for us to get third

Published Add your comment

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."
