TOTTENHAM manager Harry Redknapp admits he has to find a couple of top-quality signings if they are to stand a chance of challenging for Champions League qualification next season.

A 2-0 win at Liverpool on Sunday put them in pole position for the final Europa League place but that is little consolation after their exploits on their debut among Europe's elite earlier in the campaign.

Redknapp said: "There are six teams (challenging) for that top four.

"Manchester United are certainties, Chelsea are certainties and you have to fancy Man City next year as they are going to spend another pounds 100million.

"You also have to fancy Arsenal, because they have been there every year, and Liverpool are a great club with great tradition and they will be back stronger with Kenny (Dalglish) next year.

"We could have improved (the squad) in January. It wasn't a case of spending, we just needed a little tweak to liven us up a bit because we had a few tired players around.

"Hopefully we can get one or two players in the summer and improve again for next year because it is going to be hard.

"We have a big squad but what we need is one or two players who will make the difference to us.

"Liverpool have done that with Luis Suarez, he is going to be a big player, and we need to find one or two to keep us pushing for the top four."
