'Every game is a big game'

Harry Redknapp is looking for more of the same as we step into the second half of a memorable Premier League campaign.

Harry Redknapp is looking for more of the same as we step into the second half of a memorable Premier League campaign.

We face Everton at White Hart Lane tonight knowing victory will take us level on points with Manchester United in second place after 20 games.

Having lost to United and City in our first two matches of the season, we've put together a fantastic run of 13 wins, three draws and just one defeat in 17 games to sit third.

We've been tested to the maximum over the festive period but still came through unbeaten against Sunderland, Chelsea, Swansea and West Brom.

Sunderland and West Brom last time out proved tough nuts to crack at home and one goal has proved enough to win both matches.

Harry expects much of the same in two more home games against Everton tonight and Wolves on Saturday - with an eagerly-anticipated trip to City following on Sunday, January 22.

"Every game is a big game," said Harry. "You can't afford to slip-up too often. You have to keep picking up points if you are going to stay up towards the top group.

"We had a decent Christmas period then had a cup game on Saturday where we were able to make a lot of changes and the players all did well.

"We're going great but we've got to continue. At the moment we're in good shape, but there is half a season left with lots of difficult games, tough away games.

"It will be hard but it's a great position to be in. We're all looking forward to the challenge.

"The players are enjoying their football, they are confident and playing well. Let's hope that continues."
