Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is backing the club to turn their early season misfortunes around and finish third in the Premier League.
Spurs still seem to be suffering a hangover from June’s 2-0 Champions League final defeat to Liverpool and conceded 10 goals in their two games before the ongoing international break, losing 7-2 to Bayern Munich before crashing to a 3-0 defeat at Brighton, leaving them ninth in the table.
Mauricio Pochettino’s comments suggesting he would have left the club had they won that match in Madrid prompted doubts about his desire to continue, while rumours of unrest in the camp continue to do the media rounds.
The Argentine will hope the October hiatus has given his troops a chance to regroup and they resume their campaign on Saturday at home to bottom club, Watford.

Tottenham are then back in Champions League action as Serbian champions Crvena Zvezda head to N17 a week on Tuesday.
More results would pile further pressure on Pochettino and only fan the flames that seem to be fueling the rumours of uncertainty within the camp.
Redknapp helped turn the club around on the field during his spell in charge between 2008 and 2012, guiding the club back into the Champions League and reaching the last eight in 2010-11.
The 72-year-old remains a keen observer and keeps an eye on the ongoings at the club.
While he concedes things haven’t exactly been rosy for the Lilywhites, he is adamant they can still beat London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea to third place in the Premier League standings.
“At the start of the year I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, lot closer,” he told the Daily Mail. “It’s some squad, if you go through it, I don’t care what anybody says I don’t think there’s a lot between that squad and Liverpool’s and Man City’s squad, I really don’t.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
