Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Arsenal will continue to falter without a top striker leading the line.

Spurs hope to break into in the top four this season, with Liverpool and rivals Arsenal looking vulnerable. Arsene Wenger has also lost a key player in Robin van Persie.

"Two or three weeks ago everyone was saying how fantastic Arsenal were," Redknapp said. "But Van Persie got injured. That's how important your key players are to you. Nicklas Bendtner is injured and suddenly they've got no focal point."
