Harry Redknapp was upbeat after Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 at West Ham.
It was the first team as a manager which Redknapp had tasted defeat at his old club.
“It is the first time I’ve been beaten by the Super Hammers,” he said. “But I don’t feel any worse losing to West Ham. I’ve had a great run coming back here.
“They started strong and their front two were a real handful. They worked their socks off. It was a great team effort from West Ham and it could have gone either way. It was an exciting game, end to end stuff. It was more of a basketball match. They attacked, we attacked and it could have gone either way.
“If Tom Huddlestone had scored when he was clean through in the second half it would have been different. They would have been on the floor and we would have been in the ascendancy.”
