Harry Redknapp insists he never doubted Spurs’ credentials after they beat Arsenal 2-1.
The Spurs boss believes it’s a completely different situation compared to five weeks ago when they were hammered 5-1 by Manchester City at White Hart Lane.
“We’re a different team,” Redknapp said. “I didn’t have a midfield player then, really.
“Suddenly I was throwing Jake (Livermore) in and playing him in there with Niko Kranjcar, who never played central midfield in his life before.
“It opens the barn door. I just felt after two or three weeks, I could see what was coming. I never went home and worried about it because I was confident.
“We had Adebayor coming in, we had Scott Parker. We had Sandro coming back. I knew we’d suddenly be a much better team.”
