Since his £13.7m from Spartak Moscow, Pavlyuchenko has failed to land a regular berth at Tottenham, yet the 27-year-old has still netted 14 goals this season. He said: "When you are on the bench for five games in a row, when the press are getting to you, to come off the bench and score straight away is incredibly important.

My belief that I would definitely get my chance encouraged me. "I had to keep myself fit and in form so as not to miss it. I needed that goal like never before – even more so as it was the winner." When asked at the weekend whether Pavlyuchenko would stay, Redknapp said: "Of course, I want to keep all my best players. "There is more adjusting to do but technically he is a top-class player."
