Tottenham eyes title

Tottenham Hotspur coach Harry Redknapp believes his team's 2-1 comeback win on Sunday over Liverpool provides further evidence of its claims to be an English Premier League title contender. The win comes eight days after Tottenham beat London rival Arsenal, 3-2, after falling two goals behind.

"It's wide open," said Redknapp, whose team is in fifth place, six points behind leader Manchester United. "Of course we've got a chance. How can I sit here and say we can't when we've beaten Liverpool and won at Arsenal? If it's only Chelsea or United who can win it, why are we bothering?

"Chelsea, a month ago, looked absolute certainties but they're struggling to get results. They'll get stronger when they get some key players back, but so will we."

Now Redknapp needs to convince his squad: "I don't know if the players believe it. I've said: 'Listen, there's no reason why we can't have a go.' I said last year we should target the top four. I'm not going to say we'll win the championship now, but we've got a chance. Arsenal and Manchester City have a chance, too. Chelsea and United are favorites, but nothing's impossible."
