Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is relishing the second half of the season after his side cemented third place in the Premier League table with Thursday night’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
Redknapp’s men are in a strong position in the battle to finish in the top four and are now 4/9 with bet365 to end the season in the Champions League places.
However, the Spurs chief is facing a growing injury list, with Rafael van der Vaart ruled out of the festive period after tweaking his hamstring on Thursday evening. Aaron Lennon is also sidelined while Ledley King and Younes Kaboul picked up knocks against Chelsea too. There is some positive news though, with Jermain Defoe set to return from the hamstring problem which he picked up against Norwich on 27th November.
“We are looking forward to the second half of the season – you’ve got to continue that form if you want to finish in the top four,” said Redknapp after the draw against the Blues.
“All the teams in the top six are all good teams, difficult to beat. It’s going to be a real scrap for those top four places.”
