Tottenham were missing Scott Parker for the defeat against the Canaries, with Rafael van der Vaart making a late substitute appearance, although Harry Redknapp defended his team selection and claimed it is all to play for.
“It is all still to play for. It is going to be close, but there are still five games to go. It is the team who wants it most,” he said.
“We would settle for finishing fourth. Champions League football is the key.
“It would be lovely to finish above Arsenal, but that is going to be tough know.
“It is still all to play for – Chelsea have to play Arsenal, Newcastle have to play Chelsea, Chelsea have to play Liverpool away, so who knows?
“We get hold of the ball more when we played 4-3-3, I think we control the ball more, but one or two didn’t look quite right,” he said.
