Spurs fans will care not a jot as to whether their team deserved anything out of Wednesday night’s match at the Emirates. The simple fact is that they drew 4-4 after being 4-2 down going into the final minute of normal time. While Tottenham remain bottom of the table, their confidence must be sky high after a night of high drama, and their manager can’t wait for the next match.
Indeed, Spurs against Liverpool could be another humdinger, although Harry Redknapp might not see the opposition defence fall apart so readily again this season! Indeed, the Reds have achieved clean sheets against Chelsea and Portsmouth in the past week, and will be eyeing another three points when they head to the Lane. However, as The Guardian reports, it might not be a great time to be playing the basement boys of the Premier League.
“Hopefully it can be a springboard,” said Redknapp, before he looked ahead to Saturday’s visit of the Premier League leaders Liverpool. “We can’t wait. Bring them on. We will give it a real go. We will be difficult to beat on Saturday.”
“I haven’t experienced many games like that,” he added. “I saw Man United beat Arsenal 5-4; at least I think that was how it finished up. I was here with my Dad, who was a big Arsenal fan. It was a week before Munich. I’ve not had a team come back as late as that.
“It looked all over. But once we had 4-3, we threw [Jonathan] Woodgate up front. They’re either going to score again or we’ll have one last chance. That’s what happened.”
It’s safe to say that Jonathan Woodgate will be restored to a defensive position for the visit of Liverpool, although do Tottenham fans now expect to get something from the game against the league leaders? Confidence is surely sky high after the 4-4 result, and the players look 100% more up for it than they were under Juande Ramos.
