Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp believes that Tottenham are in a good position to claim a top-four spot at the end of the season although he insisted that the London club should back Antonio Conte to do so. The Italian has highlighted the need to improve the squad on multiple occasions.

Antonio Conte took charge of Tottenham Hotspur on November 2nd after the London club sacked Nunu Espirito Santo after a poor start to the 2021/22 campaign. The Italian manager has taken charge of the club and led them to six victories, three draws and one defeat in the Premier League since then with the hope of securing a top-four finish at the end of the season. The London club finished in the Champions League spots for four successive seasons between 2016 and 2019 but have failed to do so in subsequent seasons.

The Italian will hope to overcome the club’s recent deficits as they build a solid foundation on which they can build on for the future. However, after an unbeaten start to his time at Spurs, Conte suffered their first defeat in the Premier League since Conte took charge as Chelsea beat them 2-0 on Sunday.

It saw the Italian admit that there is a gulf in quality between his side and the top-three clubs that occupy their spots in the Premier League following the game and Jamie Redknapp has urged the Tottenham hierarchy to back the Italian in a bid to challenge their rivals in the future.

"He needs players. When he came in after Nuno, there must have been some dialogue between him and Daniel Levy about the players he needs. He's now had a couple of months to look at the squad and he's done a great job getting them into this position,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"There's a massive gulf between Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool and the rest. But Tottenham are so close to getting top four, which no other manager could have done, but he needs backing. He needs to get players in quickly - two, three, four players in the window and he's got nine days to do it,” he added.
