Redknapp: City are favourites

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Manchester City must now be considered favourites to claim the final Champions League qualifying place.

Spurs host Arsenal in a north London derby on Wednesday night and would move to within one point of fourth-placed City should they get the better of the Gunners at White Hart Lane.

However, with just five games remaining in the season after the local derby, Redknapp believes City are in pole position to gain the golden ticket into Europe's premier club competition.

"City are obviously favourites, there's no doubt about that, but it's still all to play for," he said.

"If we can win tomorrow, we're right in it again and City have some tough games too."

Meanwhile, Redknapp still believes the race for fourth could be won by any one of four teams, with Aston Villa and Liverpool still very much in the reckoning.

He added:"Villa are not out of it, Liverpool can win all their games and be back in it. It's all about who can win their games. You can never tell.

"We have the top three in the country on the spin, which is amazing really, but we look forward to it.

"We have something to play for and, at the start of the season, we would have all been delighted if we were fighting for fourth spot at this stage."
