Harry backs Defoe to finish as top scorer


Harry Redknapp believes that Jermain Defoe can top the Premier League scoring charts.

The Spurs striker returns to action this afternoon after a three-match ban.

Redknapp said: “He has looked sharp, he’s looked like every game he is going to score, so hopefully tomorrow he can come out and get back scoring goals.

“There’s no reason he can’t be leading goalscorer in the Premier League. He’s got as good a chance as anybody.

“We make lots of chances at this club so if he continues to stick them away he’ll have an opportunity.”

He added: “He’s a box player, he doesn’t get that much involved in the build-up play.

“But when it comes into the box, his finishing and his quickness puts him right up there with the best.”
