Redknapp: Arsenal wont win title!
2009-10-31 - Added by
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has declared Arsenal will not will the Premier League this season and instead believes that Manchester United or Chelsea will claim the honours.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Tottenham’s trip to the Emirates on Saturday Redknapp has not completely written
off the chances of Spurs bitter rivals but feels United or Chelsea
will be competing for the title.
The Spurs boss has hopes of eventually joining or even replacing Arsene Wenger's men among the Champions League places following their promising start to the campaign.
However their record on Arsenal's turf is even worse, with the last win coming in 1993 so 'arry's troops have a huge task on their hands if they are to dismantle Arsene Wenger’s side.
"I think Arsenal are potential winners but personally I don’t think they will win it, that's only my opinion," he said.
"I'm not writing them off, they've got a good chance. But I think the winners will come from Chelsea or Manchester United.
The former West Ham, Portsmouth and Southampton boss feels Arsenal's inexperience is a weakness which will prove too costly as they attempt to win their first trophy after four barren seasons.
"I don't think it's a soft centre, I think it's maybe a little bit of a lack of experience still," he said.
"They're not an experienced team, it's still a young team, a fantastic young team.
"But I just feel Chelsea and Man United, they have players who have been there and done it all and been the full course in the championship race and that's where I think the winners will come from.
"And Liverpool, I'm not writing them off but I do fancy one of the two."
