Birmingham City boss Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham will beat Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinals and also to the Premier League title.

Redknapp wrote for the London Evening Standard: “The title is not a foregone conclusion any more and losing on Saturday — especially to Spurs — will only make them feel even more insecure about the run-in.

“It will be very tight but Spurs start that game favourites for me. I’ve said all along that Tottenham’s starting XI is stronger than Chelsea‘s.

“They beat Chelsea 2-0 in January’s game at White Hart Lane and that will have helped them forget last season’s 2-2 draw, when both teams kicked each other about in a game that handed Leicester the title.

“The key is keeping Eden Hazard under wraps like United did.

“Spurs have the option of man-marking him like Ander Herrera did or they could match up with three at the back as earlier in the season — I’d look to do that if I was in charge.”
