QPR v Spurs: Can Redknapp get the better of Spurs and AVB?


Bookmark and Share

QPR v Spurs

Harry Redknapp squares up to his old club for the first time since he was unceremoniously shown the door in the summer and the new QPR boss would love to put one over Daniel Levy, AVB and co.

Redknapp worked wonders at White Hart Lane, transforming the club into one of the most exciting sides to watch and one capable of finishing in the top four, but it still wasn't good enough for some at Tottenham. The former West Ham and Portsmouth chief was released in the summer and now finds himself in his biggest challenge of his career at QPR.

The R's are bottom of the table, but after beating Fulham and Chelsea in recent weeks their mission to beat the drop looks achievable. They are now just five points from safety and with Southampton and Aston Villa locking horns this weekend, Redknapp knows that gap could be cut further if he can guide his boys to victory in the lunchtime kick off.

Spurs have picked up 22 points from their past 10 outings and currently sit in third place. They have the second strongest attack in the league behind Manchester United, but they are also liable to concede. With Lennon, Bale and Defoe, Spurs have registered in every away game this season so there should be goals in this one, especially as the R's have only kept one clean sheet at home.

QPR beat Spurs 1-0 last season as Mark Hughes's men struck gold to beat the drop. Adel Taarabt was hero and villain last time. What influence will the former Spurs playmaker have on this game?

QPR v Spurs; Kick Off 12.45pm January 11 2013
