Midfield maestro: Chelsea star Frank Lampard

Harry Redknapp wishes Tottenham Hotspur had a player like Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard to ease their goalscoring problem.

Spurs rely heavily on Jermaine Defoe and the England international is enjoying a prolific season with 21 goals so far.

Robbie Keane is on loan to Celtic, his replacement Eiudur Gudjohnsen has had few opportunities since arriving from Monaco and Peter Crouch has scored only once in the Barclays Premier League in two months.

Spurs' midfield players are not weighing in with their quota and Redknapp cast an envious eye at Chelsea.

He said: 'That's where Frank Lampard or someone is invaluable, he gets 20 goals a year from midfield, what a star that is for your team.

'Goals has been our problem in the last few games. We had a great run where we were scoring goals every week and then suddenly it's dried up a bit.

'We need to score a few more goals from different areas as we did earlier in the season or a few weeks back when everybody seemed to be scoring from all different positions. At the moment if Defoe's not scoring then we need other people to help.'
