Redknapp makes a good point as Chelsea take all three.
Didier Drogba, the Chelsea striker, was the outstanding player on show, bullying the Tottenham defence into submission, but he spent some of his time on the floor following challenges in apparent agony. This aspect of his performance drew a dig from Redknapp, before his admiration for the Ivorian took over.
“I don’t want to see people diving if they’ve not been touched,” said Redknapp. “I saw a bit of that out there today, when people go down and roll about, then get up and run away. It just seems to happen sometimes … I wish he was in my team, though.” (The Guardian)
I can well understand Redknapp’s point of view. Didier Drogba was terrific yesterday but was still prone to flinging himself to the floor with alarming regularity but no one can argue about his impact on the game and the Ivorian is in great form and is the type of player every manager would love to have in his armoury.
