'We'll give it our best shot'

Harry Redknapp admits it would be a 'miracle' but insists we'll give everything to try and finish third in the Premier League on Sunday.

Harry Redknapp admits it would be a 'miracle' but insists we'll give everything to try and finish third in the Premier League on Sunday.

We secured fourth place and Champions League football next season by beating Manchester City 1-0 on Wednesday night.

Those three points also took us to within striking distance of Arsenal in third.

The Gunners are two points ahead of us so the simple scenario for the final day of the season is that we need to beat Burnley at Turf Moor and hope Fulham topple Arsenal at the Emirates.

It's a big ask of Fulham though as they also have to consider the final of the Europa League against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

If the results go our way, a third-place finish will mean we go straight into the group stages of the Champions League rather than face a play-off.

"We're delighted to finish fourth," said Harry. "Third has been mentioned, but we'll take fourth.

"We'll give it our best shot but it will be difficult. It will be difficult for Fulham to get a result at Arsenal, they have the Europa League Final and Roy has to do what he feels is best for his club.

"If the miracle happens it will be even better but it's a long shot."
