Jamie Redknapp explains the difference between the Reds and Spurs
- Former Liverpool and Tottenham player discusses both clubs
- He believes Spurs won't be able to finish above Liverpool
"I'm predicting Liverpool will finish above Tottenham this season, and there's an interesting contrast between those two clubs.
"A year or two ago it looked as though Spurs were going to put real daylight between themselves and Liverpool. But the owners at Anfield have sensed an opportunity and acted, spending big money on players such as Naby Keita, Fabinho Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri. There's a real determination to seize the chance they have there.
"Spurs, likewise, have an opportunity they haven't had for a long, long time. They're moving into a brilliant stadium, their training ground is fantastic and everything is in place to have a real go. But you just wonder whether they have the ambition to do that.
"By not sealing a big deal this summer, it is almost as though they're trying to play down the expectancy on them. Whereas at Liverpool, they're going into the season full of excitement, feeling closer to the very top than they've felt for a long time. People say, well that spending has ramped up the pressure on Jurgen Klopp and his team. Yeah, so? Who wouldn't you want the pressure that you can win the league?
"Meanwhile, at Tottenham, it feels more like they're going into the season looking over their shoulder a little, trying to maintain their position. Which is a shame. Time will tell. I still think Tottenham will finish in the top four, above Arsenal and Chelsea. But it's that bit of negativity they didn't need to have around the club."
