Cape Town - Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says he doubts Chelsea's credentials to win the Premier League title, despite their 2-1 victory over Spurs on Saturday.

The 69-year-old believes that the Lilywhites have a stronger squad when everyone is fit and he feels the Blues lack depth in certain positions.

Redknapp, who was speaking as a pundit on BT Sport, said, "I think when they have got a fully fit team, I would not want to be swapping anyone in Chelsea's best team for Tottenham's.

"Maybe Chelsea are top of the league, but you do not stop the league today. The back four, you get (Toby) Alderweireld back, you get (Danny) Rose back, you get a fully fit squad, and I think Tottenham are excellent.

"In terms of the squad, you would take Chelsea, but the actual starting eleven, I would not swap any of that Tottenham team personally. I think there are three or four players in that Chelsea team who are not good enough to be playing in a team that wins the Premier League. 

"They have got fantastic talent, I love watching Eden Hazard play and Diego Costa has been outstanding, but I'm still not sure that all around that is a team that will win the league."

Chelsea currently top the standings with a seven point lead ahead of Spurs in fifth spot. 

Antonio Conte's side next travel to the Etihad Stadium where they face Manchester City on Saturday.

Kick off is at 14:30.
