Frank Lampard’s uncle, Harry Redknapp, has backed Tottenham to finish above Chelsea in third place despite their struggles this season.

Tottenham are currently 9th in the Premier League and have conceded 10 goals in the last two games before the international break (a 7-2 defeat to Bayern and a 3-0 defeat to Brighton).

Redknapp, a former Tottenham manager, believes the quality of Tottenham’s squad is close to what Liverpool and Manchester City have.

“They should be finishing in the top three with that squad, that’s where they should be, there’s no doubt about that in my opinion,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.

“To get to a Champions League final was great for them. It was great to see them reach the final.

“At the start of the year I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, lot closer. Tottenham have got a great team, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, [Heung-min] Son – I thought this could be their year.

“But it’s been a disappointing start for them for sure and they need to turn it around quickly, but I still think they’ll finish third. But they’ve got the best stadium in the country, the best training ground. It’s all in place.

“They’ve got a great group of players. It’s some squad, if you go through it, I don’t care what anybody says I don’t think there’s a lot between that squad and Liverpool’s and Man City’s squad, I really don’t.”
