Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp claims five more wins will secure UEFA Champions League football for the North London club.

Spurs ended a run of five Premier League games without success on Sunday when they saw off Swansea 3-1 at White Hart Lane.

Two second-half headers from on-loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor secured their victory and moved Redknapp's side level on points with third-place Arsenal.

After the match, the 65-year-old targeted five more wins from their remaining seven games to earn a Champions League berth next season.

Redknapp said: "I would take five (wins) now. If we get five we will have Champions League football next year I'm sure of that.

"It is hard to call where the results are going to come and who against and that is what makes it interesting.


"We would love to get third - I would love to finish above Arsenal if I can. If we get Champions League football we will all be delighted again.

"That is the key really, that is what we want - Champions League football next year at Tottenham."

Redknapp was full of praise for Swansea counterpart Brendan Rodgers after Sunday's clash and hailed the work he has done in South Wales.

He added: "I can't speak highly enough of the job he has done there.

"In this country if all the youth teams and kids teams tried to play like they play...that is the way to play the game if you want to produce technical footballers."
