Harry Redknapp was delighted with the result and performance after Wednesday night's 2-0 win against Everton.

Goals from Aaron Lennon and Benoit Assou-Ekotto moved us up to joint-second in the Premier League, level on 45 points with Manchester United.

And while Benoit's stunning second half strike will take the plaudits - a piledriver into the top corner from 30 yards - Harry actually pinpointed Aaron's opener in the 35th minute as the key moment at the Lane.

Benoit was involved in that goal as well, picking out Aaron with a crossfield pass that the winger took inside Leighton Baines, sped into the box and despatched left-footed past Tim Howard.

"The first goal was all-important because Everton are always difficult to beat and dangerous on the break as well," said Harry.

"They have good players so we needed that goal and once we scored, we dominated the game.

"After that we had plenty of possession and we played some fantastic football at times."

The result also represented our eighth clean sheet in 20 matches in the Premier League.

"It was a great win," added Harry. "You never get an easy game against Everton.

"David had a very attacking-looking team and they went for it. They started the game well, but we got on top and played very well in the end.

"The passing, the crispness of the passing and the movement off the ball was fantastic. I enjoy watching it and I'm sure the spectators must enjoy watching us play."
