Harry Redknapp was pleased with Tottenham’s performance in the 5-0 win against Burnley.
Redknapp decided to keep Peter Crouch on the bench, despite his mid-week hat-trick and his decision proved correct when Robbie Keane bagged four of the five goals, with Jermaine Jenas grabbing the other.
“It was a difficult decision to leave Peter Crouch out today having played so fantastic against Preston,” he said. “It wasn’t easy, believe me, it was a very difficult decision for me.
“But I decided to go with the two little ‘uns as we started the season and they played well again today. Crouchy is in great form as well so it’s a nice problem.
“The game could have been over at half-time, we missed a couple of great opportunities to finish it off.
“It was a good performance and it’s been a good week for us – two great performances.
“We’re going well, 15 points is a smashing start for us from seven games, we’ve just got to keep it going and see where it takes us.
“Keep playing like that and the fans will enjoy the football. We’re an attacking team. I thought Niko Kranjcar had a great debut today, I thought his ability on the ball was superb, he worked hard and passed it great – he’s a real Tottenham player.”
“They pass it, they keep the ball well and they came out second half and started to pass it and it gets a bit frustrating to get the ball.
“They have an extra man in midfield who can play, Alexander, who is a good passer.
“They play well, they’re a good team I think. But every time we went forward we look dangerous and I feel we missed a lot of good chances as well to make the score even higher.”
