Redknapp disagrees with Warnock over state of Tottenham squad

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is confident his old team will finish above Crystal Palace.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT that he disagrees with Neil Warnock over the state of the Spurs squad.

Earlier this week, Warnock claimed that if he was still the manager at Crystal Palace, he wouldn’t swap a single one of their current players for anyone in a Tottenham shirt.

However, Redknapp has suggested that he would rather be in the shoes of the North Londoners, who he feels will finish above Palace in the Premier League this season.

“I don’t think that. I think Tottenham will finish above Palace – They’ve got pace (Palace) and they can beat anybody – I think they’ll finish in mid-table but I think Tottenham will be fifth or sixth again this year,” he told talkSPORT.

A slow start but too early to judge

Tottenham are yet to find top gear and start producing the sort of football, which makes them a very entertaining side to watch.

They signed several new players earlier in the summer, which has created a pressure and strain for those individuals to settle into the side quickly and effectively.

Some will take time to bed in, as they look to develop their relationships with the key players from last season.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is also trying to get his ideas across to those new players, which again, will take some time.

It’s too early to judge accurately where Tottenham and Palace will finish the season, but Tottenham can trust the quality they have in their squad.
