The former Tottenham coach was very impressed with the with the fight his team displayed after going behind, and says it is the best he has seen from them since his arrival.

"It was a good performance today. I felt we started well, we were the better team first half, found ourselves 1-0 down, but got the equaliser before half time," Redknapp told reporters.

"I thought [in] the first-half, we played ever so well. Moved the ball quickly, had width; both wingers caused them problems.

"They came out in the second half and they were the better team for 15 minutes, but we got ourselves back into it and then two goals finished them off.

"I'm pleased Loic's scoring goals. That's his third, he's a finisher. It was a good all-round performance today.

"The two in midfield, [Stephane] Mbia and [Ji-Sung] Park - I took a gamble on Park in midfield. He has spent most of his career wide, but I played him [centrally] with Mbia and thought the two were fantastic.

"I played two wingers, two strikers and we went for it. Everybody did their jobs. We looked a good attacking force, and that's the best I've seen us going forward since I've been here."
