Heurelho Gomes was praised by Harry Redknapp after the goalkeeper produced a string of saves to help Tottenham to a point against Fulham.

The Brazilian denied Clint Dempsey, Bobby Zamora, Damien Duff and Zoltan Gera to earn a draw.  The Spurs boss believes that Gomes is now living up to his full potential.

“Gomes did well. Fulham were dangerous when they got it forward to Zamora early and Gomes made a couple of good saves,” said Redknapp.

“But so did Schwarzer – Crouch’s shot in the second half was in all the way. I thought it was a fair point.

“Gomes has improved. He was short of confidence when I first came here last year but he’s back to what everyone said he was before I came to the club.

“People told me in Holland what a great keeper he was and he’s showing it. That’s three clean sheets on the spin and that’s important.”

“Fulham beat Manchester United 3-0 last weekend so it’s a tough place to come. I’ve got no problems leaving here with a point,” he added.

  1. I never doubted Gomes’s ability he pulled off some world class stunning saves,and it helps when you have got Mickey D in front organising the defence
    Dawson for the world cup,bring on the Spammers! COYS

  2. he’s a good keeper in the first place as he was at PSV.
    all i thought is he needed time to adjust himself towards
    the quickness of the EPL.

    Credits to Dawson, Bassong, King, Corluka & Woodgate too
    for providing him the best central defense available.
    Upson would be nice as an additional to Spurs defense.

  3. Gomes was worldclass in eindhoven and still is worldclass at the Spurs. When a manager gives him confidence it will pay out. This is maybe a wise lesson for Redknapp or is he still planning to sell Gomes?
