Harry Redknapp says the tussle between Spurs and Arsenal for third place in the Premier League could go down to the last day of the season.
The Spurs boss, whose side are 13/10 with bookmaker to defeat Sunderland on Saturday, says they must win five of their remaining seven games if they are to clinch Champions League football next season.
Spurs are now level on points with north London rivals Arsenal after a hard-fought 3-1 defeat of Swansea on Sunday, but they are one place behind the Gunners in fourth on goal difference.
Redknapp said: “I would take five (wins) now. If we get five we will have Champions League football next year, I’m sure of that.
“It is hard to call where the results are going to come and who against and that is what makes it interesting.
“We would love to get third – I would love to finish above Arsenal if I can. If we get Champions League football we will all be delighted again.”
