Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has challenged his players to finish above Arsenal this season.

Spurs moved within striking distance of the top four as Rafael van der Vaart's double gave them a 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers.

The Spurs boss said: "I don't know if we're favourites for the top four. We've never finished above Arsenal before and we'll have to do it this time I think.

"We've got a decent squad, good young players and I always thought we'd be there. I always felt there would be six teams scrapping for it this year.

"Manchester City will probably be the team to beat. But there's others as well, including us, and don't write Arsenal off. "
