In-form Spurs please Harry

Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham Hotspur are now playing to their potential after they picked up three more important points with Sunday's 2-1 win at Aston Villa. Goals from Jermaine Jenas and Darren Bent extended their unbeaten run to five games and moved Spurs further away from the relegation zone. Redknapp's side are now up to 11th place in the Premier League table. "To go to Villa, one of the best sides around at the moment and take three points, is superb for us," said Redknapp. "Overall I was delighted because they are a difficult side to play against. They've got lots of ability and the crowd get right behind them. It was a great performance. "The players have been terrific and we're on a good run. We're working hard and getting the rewards. "We were fantastic against United for two hours at Wembley, came back and beat Middlesbrough 4-0 four days later and that showed real character. We then controlled it at Sunderland and scored a late goal for another good point. "So we're in good form - we've taken 33 points in 21 games since I've been here and you'd take that average as that's top seven form. "I'm delighted with the players, their attitude has been first-class."
