Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he would have backed Chelsea to beat Tottenham Hotspur this weekend if supporters were allowed at Stamford Bridge this weekend but predicts the points will be shared in the much-anticipated London derby.

Redknapp told The Sun: “The one certainty is it should be a cracking game because both Chelsea and Spurs have got a serious chance of being right up there this season.

“I’ve said all along that Mourinho has a fantastic squad with cover in every position — and most of them are established internationals as well.

“But Frank is building a great squad too, he’s getting backing from the owner and I’ve no doubt he will be a massive success.

“If the fans were allowed in I’d have fancied that to give Chelsea a little edge, but as it is I really can’t split the two teams.

“It should be a really good battle with all those stars, but if I had to put my house on it I’d go for the draw.”
