Harry now looking upwards

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes the focus has shifted from survival to a possible top-eight finish following Saturday's 1-0 win over Chelsea. Luka Modric's 50th minute winner moved a previously struggling Spurs up to ninth place in the Premier League table. Last month, Spurs were still embroiled in a relegation fight but, after an impressive run of form of late, they are suddenly back in the mix for a possible run at the UEFA Cup qualification spots. "That is a big three points for us and we've been in great form of late - I think that's 18 points from our last nine games - which is terrific," said Redknapp. "We've a long way to go to get into the top four - that's very, very difficult - and I'm not going to kid myself or anyone by saying we're close to that at the moment. "But we were excellent today and I thought we were comfortable throughout, even if they put us under pressure in the last 10 minutes. "We're in a good situation now where we can start looking up. "I don't know what it'll take to stay up but, with the way we're playing, we're all about how high up we can finish in the table now."
