REDKNAPP: THERE IS ALL TO PLAY FOR
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp insists there is still "all to play for" in the battle for a Champions League spot despite his side being held to a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.
Arsenal are now favourites to claim third place in the Barclays Premier League despite Emmanuel Adebayor's penalty cancelling out Villa midfielder Chris Herd's deflected opener.
Spurs also had defender Danny Rose sent off early in the second period for a challenge on Villa defender Alan Hutton.
In contrast, the point for Villa virtually guaranteed another season of top flight football.
Redknapp said: "When you are down to 10 men and you are one-nil down it's a point gained in the end, but on the balance of the game it was two points lost.
"Of course, there was frustration because a win today and we were guaranteed fourth place but it's all to play for still. There's one game left and look at the permutations.
"It could be Chelsea, it could be us, it could be Arsenal, it could be Newcastle. It's just impossible to tell.
"We've all got tough games next week. No one has got an easy game so it will be an interesting last game of the season."
Redknapp added: "Fulham next week will be a hard game. Mind you, Arsenal have got no gimme with West Brom away. Newcastle go to Everton.
"If Chelsea go and win at Liverpool and beat Blackburn, we'll have to win.
"A draw won't do. We need to win. But it will be a tough game. Martin Jol won't be coming back to Tottenham wanting to help us, that's for sure, and Fulham are a decent team."
Redknapp admitted that Rose probably deserved to be red carded.
He said: "It didn't look a great tackle, to be honest. I've just looked at it again. He caught Alan Hutton, there's no doubt about that.
"I don't know if he got pushed by Charles N'Zogbia and it's not like Danny. He's not a nasty player, it's not in his nature to do something like that, so it was a bit out of character."
