Redknapp: "Arsenal Aren't Going To Win It This Year"


Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has written off North London rivals Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League this season, with the former Portsmouth boss feeling that it will be a two-horse race between holders Manchester United and Chelsea for the Premiership this year.

This is despite the fact that Liverpool top the table at the moment, but only managed to draw with Hull City at Anfield on Saturday, while the Gunners were held 1-1, by Middlesbrough and Chelsea also were held by his former club West Ham United on Sunday.

“One of those two will win,” Redknapp said.

“That's not being too clever, though, because there's only Liverpool up there as well with them."

Redknapp, who saw his Spurs side earn a spirited point against the Red Devils at White Hart Lane at the weekend believes that Arsene Wenger’s side are already too far adrift and that Liverpool rely too heavily on captain Steven Gerrard and striker Fernando Torres and has claimed that if something should happen to Gerrard then their title claims will be over.

“Arsenal aren't going to win it this year. I can't see them coming back into it and winning the championship,” he added.

“And I think Liverpool rely so heavily on [Steven] Gerrard and [Fernando] Torres.

“If something happened to Gerrard, I don't know what they'd do. So I still see them being short of Chelsea and Manchester United."
