Harry Redknapp was upbeat following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at White Hart Lane.
Spurs took the lead after just 58 seconds courtesy of a spectacular overhead kick by Jermain Defoe, but the Premier League champions came back to condemn Redknapp’s side to their first defeat of the new campaign.
“I have never got carried away. It’s still a great start, 12 points from five games,” said Redknapp.
“It wasn’t an easy start for us in terms of games this season, with Liverpool and Man United at home, but I fancied us to get something.
“We had a fantastic start and we were seeing three points again. But we knew they would come back – that’s why they win titles and European titles.
“They have outstanding players – (Darren) Fletcher was fantastic, I thought.”
