Redknapp plays down title hopes
Tottenham missed the chance to go level on points with Manchester United and Manchester City at the top of the table after being held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves at White Hart Lane.
But Redknapp, who saw his side miss out on Champions League football this season after finishing fifth last year, insists a top four spot remains his sole priority.
"I've never said to anybody that we are going to win the league. If we can get a Champions League position again, it will be great for us," Redknapp said. "Today it wouldn't quite drop for us but we're still on a great run."
"I only answered the question of if it is possible [to win the league]," he said. "And, of course it is possible. Man City and Man United will be red hot favourites but, if we have a fantastic run in the second half like we have had in the first half of the season, it could happen."
Luka Modric's second-half strike cancelled out Steven Fletcher's early opener as Wolves boosted their survival hopes with a hard-earned point. And Redknapp believes the result shows the strength of the Premier League.
"You can't win every week," he said. "Wolves worked their socks off and defended for their lives. They are not just going to roll over. A point's a point."
