Harry Redknapp thinks Tottenham are capable of winning the Premier League title this season.

Spurs finished sixth last season, 22 points off second-placed Manchester City and 40 points behind champions Liverpool.

However, Jose Mourinho has strengthened his side a lot in the summer transfer window with the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty and Carlos Vinicius reinforcing their squad.

And Redknapp reckons they have a good chance of going toe-to-toe with Liverpool and City for the title this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “If you ask me honestly, I think they’ll make top four. I think they could even win the league this year. I know people are going to think I’m crazy but I look at that squad and it looks like it’s going to be an open year.

“Look at the results at the weekend, no crowds, different atmosphere.”

His son, Jamie, interrupted him and said: “You’ve gone early there, dad. You’ve gone early.”

To which Harry responded: “I’m telling you, that is some squad they’ve got. They’ve got cover in every position. Every position they are strong, it’s a real, real powerful squad.”

When asked by presenter Jim White if Tottenham could win the league, Harry said: “I think if anyone is going to upset the top two you’ve got to fancy Tottenham.”

Jamie then asked his dad: “You’re worried about Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation aren’t you?”

Harry added: “Well if he’s out for eight weeks, what are they going to do? I don’t know who the third choice is, who is now going to become second choice, what about if they get an injury? Let’s be honest, the lad who played yesterday [Adrian], he struggled yesterday didn’t he?

“So I thought they would’ve gone and tried to get a keeper. You said they tried to get a keeper today…”

White clears up that both Liverpool and Everton were reportedly trying to sign Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga earlier in the day.

White again asks Redknapp senior whether he really thinks Tottenham will win the title, to which Harry responds: “Go through that team, have a look at the squad. Have a look at that forward line: Son, Harry Kane, Bale, you’ve got Dele Alli. Look at the strength in depth they’ve got absolutely everywhere.

“Midfield, full of midfield players. Defensively, two left-backs now, two right-backs.”

Jamie interjects again: “I can’t back you up on this one, dad.”

Harry continues: “They’ve got another left-back, they’ve bought another right-back. I think Tottenham are a danger to anybody in that division this year.”
