Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham are two wins away from guaranteeing Barclays Premier League survival but also has his sights on making a late push for Europe.

Spurs climbed into 11th in the table with their weekend win at Aston Villa and moved six points clear of the bottom three.

Redknapp said: "How many points needed to survive? I spoke to Peter Storrie at Portsmouth and he was talking about 42 points to me and that is a bit frightening. I don't see you'll need 42 points."

He added: "When the pressure comes on it gets very difficult for some teams. It could still take 39 points, something around that mark.

"It's two wins for us. For some teams you are talking about six wins. West Brom probably need another 16-17 points.

"We've just got to keep trying to win games. Every manager apart from the top four - plus Aston Villa, Everton and West Ham - will be looking over their shoulder."

However, Redknapp dismissed reports he had claimed Tottenham would be challenging for the top four next season.

He said: "To break into the top four is very difficult. They're on another level still, in my opinion.

"I certainly didn't say I see us being a top four club next year. I wouldn't put myself under that kind of pressure."
