Redknapp backs Arsenal to win the title
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp thinks Arsenal now have an "unbelievable'' chance of pipping Manchester United to the Premier League title.
Three weeks ago Arsenal were in the running for an incredible four trophies, but they saw their season come crashing down to earth with a poor run of form which saw them lose in the Carling Cup final and suffer elimination from the FA Cup and the Champions League.
Morale may have taken a hit but Arsene Wenger's side still have a good chance of ending their six-year trophy drought if they can overcome the three-point gap which separates them and league leaders United. The Gunners have the advantage of a match in hand - against Tottenham at White Hart Lane - and have arguably an easier run-in than the Red Devils.
United and Chelsea will face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals and despite their elimination from the Europa League, Manchester City still have to fight on two fronts given that they are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Redknapp believes that gives Spurs' north London rivals their best chance of winning the Premier League title since they last lifted the trophy in 2004.
"Arsenal have got an unbelievable chance of winning the championship now,'' Redknapp said. "They are the only team with a clear run at it so you'd have to think they've got the best chance they're ever going to have. They are not playing Saturday, midweek, Saturday, midweek, like some of the other teams.
"If Man Utd can go on and win the league now, with these games coming up, that would be an amazing feat. They have injuries - I've read today that Rio Ferdinand could be out for the season. Arsene must be sitting there and saying: 'This is fantastic'.''
