Former Tottenham Hotspurs manager Harry Redknapp has urged Spurs to fight for the Premier League title and ignore fatigue.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have enjoyed a fantastic season and are on the verge of winning their first league title in history as they sit second in the table and just three points adrift of leaders Leicester City with ten games remaining.
However, Tottenham are heavily involved in the Europa League where they will play Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 and many has suggested that fatigue may play a part in how they finish the season.
But Redknapp, who was in charge at White Hart Lane from 2008-2012 disagrees completely.
“I think people get carried away with [the idea of] tiredness and use that as an excuse,” he said.
“You don’t get tired when they’ve got a chance of winning the Premier League for the first time in Spurs’ history.
“I don’t think tiredness is going to be a problem.”
Tottenham host Arsenal on Saturday and Redknapp reckons that could play a massive role in how the title race shapes up.
“It’s wide open. Leicester have got a great chance of winning it. So have Tottenham,” he said.
“I think if Tottenham beat Arsenal then I can’t see Arsenal winning it. That would put them in a very difficult position.
“So Saturday is a real crunch game there. And if Tottenham win it then I could see it [the Premier League] being between them and Leicester.”
