Harry Redknapp reckons the poorest Manchester United team in years are getting handed the Premier League title.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s team are now five points clear at the top after their late win at Bolton.

But Tottenham lost more ground in their bid to return to the Champions League next season with a goalless draw against West Ham.

And with Arsenal also dropping points, the destiny of the title is now firmly in the hands of the leaders with only eight games to go.

“Really we are handing the title to Manchester United this year,” Redknapp admitted.

“This is as poor as Manchester United have played in years, but they keep stumbling along and nicking results when they should have got done.

“Chelsea have blown up, Arsenal too – it is there for somebody this year to win the championship.”

The best news for Tottenham this weekend was Gareth Bale signing a new four-and-a-half year contract to keep him at White Hart Lane until 2015.

And with his side now 14 points off the top, Redknapp claimed the addition of “one or two” players in the summer will make them serious title contenders next season.

“I don’t think the other big clubs have got anything that Spurs don’t have,” he said. “People might think I’m mad to be aiming to win the league but I think it is possible.

“But if I do win one it will be a bit of a miracle, won’t it? I think if I did then I’d probably retire. But I do think it is possible.

“If we can go and get a couple of Luka Modrics, people like that. We’ve got to believe we can achieve anything here.”
