Harry Redknapp was disappointed as Spurs squandered a two-goal lead to draw at Everton on Monday.

Spurs appeared to be comfortably heading towards three points after Jermain Defoe and Michael Dawson had scored early in the second half, but Louis Saha and Tim Cahill netted in the last 15 minutes to salvage a point for the Toffees.

Defoe then saw his last minute penalty saved by Tim Howard, as Spurs confirmed they had thrown away a win and Redknapp was understandaby annoyed.

“There looked to be only one winner.

“It was game over as we looked to be in control and I couldn’t see any way we weren’t going to go on and win.

“We had chances to go 3-0 up and then they pulled a goal back. It was poor defending, we got sucked in.

“They came on strong and it was a different game for 10 minutes. When you get it back to 2-1, you are going to throw the kitchen sink at the opposition and that is what they did.

“Then we get a great chance to win it with a penalty with the last kick of the game.

“Robbie Keane is our penalty taker, but you’d fancy the little man (Defoe) to score with the form he is in – but it wasn’t to be.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Why didn’t Redknapp replace Crouch who was missing many scoring chances? Keane or even Pav would have been a good choice. Knowing that Defoe is a poor penalty shooter, why did he not try someone else?

  3. hes such a little glory boy defoe!! Hes a great striker around the box but so phuqqin greedy its unreal! Was a sh!te penalty and lets hope hes not allowed to take any more until he gets some practice in training!!! 2 points badly missed!!! As for crouch, at 6`7″ you would think we would be playing high balls into him around the 6 yard box and getting him to nod em in at will!! We`re not making use of his height to nick crafty goals when we need them…..
