Harry Redknapp sets Tottenham Hotspur target of five wins

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says his team have to win their remaining five league games to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.

Redknapp's side remain fourth after a loss to Norwich but Newcastle are only behind them on goal difference, with Chelsea also chasing them.

"We have got to look to win all five games really," said Redknapp.

"Now it is a case of the team which has the best last five games and we have to make sure it's us."

Tottenham have to play Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday as well as having to face four teams, in QPR, Blackburn, Bolton and Aston Villa, fighting for Premier League survival.

Redknapp is aware his side will have to up their game after the defeat by Norwich at White Hart Lane which condemned Spurs to just one win in the least eight top-flight outings.

Anthony Pilkington gave Norwich the lead and, despite Jermain Defoe equalising, Elliott Bennett grabbed a Canaries winner.

"Credit to them [Norwich]. I think they deserved it," said Redknapp. "They worked very hard and made it difficult for us and I think thought they played excellent.

"We were disappointing. I changed the system to 4-4-2 and we were too open. I thought they bullied us a little bit. Their front players were strong and held the ball up well and we really didn't get a grip of them.

"It was a difficult day for the people at the back. We certainly weren't at our best. It was a bad day but we have to pick ourselves up.

"We have got an FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Sunday and then we have got five big games to go.

"There's no easy games. You can't underestimate anyone."
