Jamie Redknapp has tipped Tottenham to end their trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup.
Spurs have been trophyless for the last 12 years, but they beat Brentford in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup yesterday to give themselves the chance to win the first trophy of the season.
They will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the final, and Redknapp thinks that they have what it takes to beat either of those teams.
Spurs have had a fine season even though they hit a sticky patch recently. The likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have been in fine form.
They have also been privileged to have some in-form midfielders like Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Redknapp thinks that they can get the better of either Manchester side again as they have already done in the league.
‘I think right now, to a certain extent, that we and as fans get brainwashed after getting to the Champions League and getting top four, what it means to the owners and the money that it brings to the club,’ he told Sky Sports via Mail Sport.
‘When you look back at your career, you want to win trophies. Of course it’s going to be difficult against two good sides but they proved they can beat Man City with a really good performance.
‘Earlier in the season, I know it’s a different Manchester United team now, but they demolished them. And to a certain extent, the good thing for them now is, they’ve got so much to look forward to – so many league games, they can put this to bed now and it’s really something to look forward to.
‘I think with the team they’ve got right now, and they’re so explosive up front, they can beat anybody.’
Spurs beat Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford and also recorded a 2-0 win over Manchester City earlier in the season.
