Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp thinks Tottenham are on the same level as Chelsea as a team and that if Pochettino would have had his full squad available yesterday ( Rose, Lamela and Alderweireld were missing) the result could be different:
“I think when they have got a fully fit team, I would not want to be swapping anyone in Chelsea’s best team for Tottenham’s.
“Maybe Chelsea are top of the league, but you do not stop the league today. The back four, you get Alderweireld back, you get Rose back, you get a fully fit squad, and I think Tottenham are excellent.”
Redknapp is convincend Spurs won’t give up in the title race:
“In the first half I thought they completely outplayed Chelsea today, Chelsea got the goal at the right time and it brought them back into the game, second half they were much better, but I still think Tottenham will be bang in there at the end of the season.
“In terms of squad, you would take Chelsea, but the actual starting eleven, I would not swap any of that Tottenham team personally.”
