Everton revival no surprise to Harry

Harry Redknapp isn't surprised to see Everton racing up the Premier League.

Harry Redknapp isn't surprised to see Everton racing up the Premier League.

The Toffees are up to eighth in the table after a run of just one defeat in 11 matches including wins against Chelsea and United.

Ironically, that run started after our 2-2 draw at Goodison Park in December, a match we dominated and led 2-0 only for Everton to score twice in the final 10 minutes. They were 15th that day.

Asked if they could still make it into the European shake-up in the league, Harry insisted: "They are still contenders. They've got it all to do but they've come from way off the pace.

"You always knew they would put a run together once they got their key players fit.

"David Moyes has had a horrific injury list of top players and you can't afford to lose players like Arteta, Neville, Jagielka because they are all vital players for the team.

"There are probably more I haven't mentioned and when you lose those type of players they are irreplaceable. They make a dent in your team. You are not as good as you would be with them.

"Once he's got them fit, David's doing what he's done every year, a fantastic job.

"You never get an easy game against Everton. They are a tough team. They work hard and it will be difficult."
