Tottenham Hotspur play Stoke City on the back of three straight Premier League defeats and boss Harry Redknapp knows they need a win.

Spurs are just a point ahead of Arsenal in fourth and four ahead of fifth placed Chelsea, who they play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: "If we don't win then things are really getting a bit tight. It has closed up and you have to make sure we try to pick up three points.

"It will be a tough game and we need to be ready to play, if we are not, then we will be in trouble with Stoke, that is for sure."

The Lillywhites still have third spot in their hands despite the 5-2 drubbing by their closest rivals, a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester United and a 1-0 loss at Everton's Goodison Park.

However, the Spurs chief has not been concerned by the recent form and admitted: "We have had a run of not good results, but they have not been bad performances.

"We are not playing badly, but we need it - a result - and want to be in form."

Tonights game will see the return to White Hart Lane of Peter Crouch, a player who Redknapp has managed at three different clubs.

The 6ft 7in striker played for Southampton, Portsmouth and most recently for Spurs under the stewardship of Redknapp.

"Crouchy has made an impact wherever he has been," his former boss added. "He did a great job for us here, and also for me when we were at Portsmouth. I was sorry to lose him and it was not a case of wanting to get rid of Peter.

"We were taking on Emmanuel Adebayor and I could not keep everybody. Peter moved on, but you would have him any day, he is a top player and a great lad as well."
