Harry Redknapp has been impressed with Emmanuel Adebayor's first few weeks at the club.

The striker marked his home debut with two goals in Sunday's convincing 4-0 win against Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League.

That came a week after he scored on his full debut, the key opening goal in the 2-0 victory at Molineux.

"He was fantastic against Liverpool and he was great at Wolves last week as well," said Harry.

"The pass he played to Defoe just after half-time was unbelievable. The picture he had, the ball came from Kyle Walker, he helped it on and Jermain should have scored really.

"He has great vision and sees all the pictures. He sees everything, he has a football brain and that great awareness. He's scored three goals in two games and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be up there with 20 goals again.

"He’s had a smile on his face and runs around like a two-year-old during training every morning! We need to slow him up, almost. You couldn’t ask for more than he’s given us."

Jermain Defoe also scored against Wolves and Liverpool and the pair are working well together.

"They've linked-up well," added Harry. "Jermain has been in great form, put a real shift in. He looks stronger and has held the ball up well for us.

"Last season was his first bad season. He’s a 16, 18 goal a season striker, he should be getting 20 in my opinion with the ability he has. I think this could be his year when he’s back up there getting 18, 20 again."
