Harry delighted with “fantastic performance”

Updated: April 2, 2012

Tottenham rediscovered the winning feeling as a brace from Emmanuel Adebayor helped them to a 3-1 win over Swansea.

Rafael van der Vaart also scored to move Spurs level on points with third place Arsenal however despite just a single goal separating the two sides Harry Redknapp was not taking a Champions League spot for granted especially with Chelsea waiting to pounce in fifth.

“It’s going to be tight,” he said on Sky Sports News.

“I wouldn’t write Chelsea off, I wouldn’t write Newcastle off – they’ve done a miracle as well – and Arsenal obviously are bang there.

“It’s going to be interesting but that’s what football is about. That’s what supporters want – they want excitement. It’s going to be a great end to the season.”

Redknapp was delighted with his side’s display especially with confidence low following a seven week wait for a league win.

“I thought we were fantastic first half,” he said. “The players did everything we asked – pressed and closed and had all the chances really.

“They started well, the first 10 minutes, and then we got after them all over the park and broke their game up. They’re a good side, they play fantastic football but I don’t think we really let them play in the first half.

“There was going to be a spell where they would come into it because to keep closing like we did in the first half, it’s difficult to keep that momentum going and they came back into it but we came back strong again. It was a fantastic performance.”
