It’s so far being an amazing season with unexpected happenings in the Premier League as Manchester City are currently 4th and Leicester City are 2nd.

Liverpool have had a massive start to the season and are top of the table, while Chelsea have surprised everyone and are in third position.

Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp reckons Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United are all facing an up-hill battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League, with Spurs currently languishing in 14th. However, Redknapp was full of praise for Chelsea, and admitted that Frank Lampard’s side is doing great.

Redknapp has warned that three of the traditional top six teams might end up missing a Champions League spot this season.

“Tottenham have it all on now to get in the top four this year,” Redknapp told The Sun.

“The only thing now in their favour is that Arsenal look so poor. Chelsea are doing great, they’re going to be challenging. Leicester are going to be bang in there.

“But you’re looking at Arsenal — and Manchester United — and wondering if they are going to make it this year. I can see both of those two not making the top four unless there is a big improvement.

“It’s been a disappointing season so far for Spurs. I really thought they would be close to Manchester City and Liverpool and challenging.

“It’s difficult. The players haven’t hit the form they did last year. I’m a big fan of the manager and hopefully they can turn it around.”
