Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp believes that whilst Sir Alex Ferguson’s unbeaten Manchester United side are slight favourites to take the title, their former strength has diminished.
“You can’t be as good as you were when you had [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Carlos] Tevez,” Redknapp told the BBC.
“I couldn’t say United are on another level – I can’t see them going the year unbeaten.
“There are lots of teams who could beat them on any given day – Other teams have improved and got closer to them.”
Furthermore, Redknapp believes that his side are “outsiders” to win the Premier League title this season, following their 0-0 draw with league-leaders Manchester United at White Hart Lane yesterday.
“We are outsiders but the favourites will be United still.”
“It’s so close. There’s not a million miles between any of the top five.”
Spurs are currently lying in fifth place in the Premier League table, eight points behind United and having played a game more.
And Redknapp insists that his side can more than hold their own with anyone.
“We can hold our own with anybody,” stated Redknapp.
“We’ve not reached Manchester United yet, but we’re getting closer.
“We’re an improving team and we’re getting up there and eventually
looking to win the championship.
