Redknapp's side will be looking to bounce back from their opening day defeat when they travel to Tottenham on Sunday.
The fixture means a return to White Hart Lane for Redknapp, who was sacked by Spurs in June 2012.
"It's a tough game but I'm looking forward to going back there," Redknapp said.
"They'll be strong this year. With the money they spent last year they've got to be pushing for the top four."
