Harry Redknapp praised Tom Huddlestone for his display in the heart of the Tottenham defence in the 5-0 win against Burnley.

Huddlestone, who is more accustomed to a midfield role had to line up in defence last weekend due to Ledley King’s hamstring injury.

“I thought Tom was tremendous at centre-half,” Redknapp told the official Spurs site.

“He started out playing at the back as a kid and he’s majestic when he plays there, he just has that air of confidence about him.

“When someone like that is so comfortable on the ball you never panic when he gets it, you think ‘it’s okay, Tom’s got it’ and he reads the game so well as well.

“He’s been terrific for us this season.”
