Tottenham are in a battle between themselves and Arsenal, Newcastle as well as Chelsea but will be missing Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto through injury

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that defenders Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto could be out of the rest of the season.

Spurs have been struggling in recent weeks, picking up six points out of a possible 24 since their derby defeat to Arsenal.

Kaboul picked up a knee injury on Easter Monday against Norwich while Assou-Ekotto sustained a shoulder injury against QPR on Saturday.

“We’ve lost some key players at the wrong time, Kaboul, Dawson and now Assou-Ekotto,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

“Three defenders look like they’re out for the rest of the season so it’s been difficult.

“No excuses. We’ve got four games to go. We can still do it. We’ve got to win four games. We’ve got to go on a good run now.”

Tottenham currently sit in fifth and Redknapp believes it is still a four way battle for third between Arsenal, Newcastle, Spurs and Chelsea.

“We’ve got to make sure we finish fourth first of all, or third,” he continued. “We’ve got to make sure we’re in a position where we qualify, if we don’t it doesn’t matter what happens.

“What can you do? You’ve got to take it as it comes. We’ve got to make sure we get that position and see if they win the cup then that would be it.

“But if they don’t you’ve got to make sure you’re in there. You don’t want to not qualify and then they don’t win the cup and then you think “well if only we’d made it”.

“We’ve got to go for that qualification and see where it takes us. It’s still wide open, Arsenal, Chelsea, ourselves and Newcastle. It’s still any two from four.”
