Harry Redknapp claims no Chelsea players would get into a fully-fit Tottenham starting line-up.

Chelsea beat Spurs 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night and sit top of the Premier League, seven points clear of their London rivals.

However, former Tottenham boss Redknapp still suggests his former side have a stronger starting XI.

“I think when they have got a fully fit team, I would not want to be swapping anyone in Chelsea’s best team for Tottenham’s,” Redknapp said.

“Maybe Chelsea are top of the league, but you do not stop the league today.

“The back four, you get Alderweireld back, you get Rose back, you get a fully fit squad, and I think Tottenham are excellent.

“In the first half I thought they completely outplayed Chelsea today, Chelsea got the goal at the right time and it brought them back into the game, second half they were much better, but I still think Tottenham will be bang in there at the end of the season.

“In terms of squad, you would take Chelsea, but the actual starting eleven, I would not swap any of that Tottenham team personally.

“I think there are three or four players in that Chelsea team who are not good enough to be playing in a team that wins the Premier League. I still think they are short at left-back, I’m still not convinced by the three at the back, I still don’t know if they have enough flair in midfield.

“They have got fantastic talent, I love watching Hazard play and Costa has been outstanding, but I’m still not sure that all around that is a team that will win the league.”
