Harry on Red alert

Harry Redknapp is not taking anything for granted as we prepare to face a Liverpool side currently struggling for form on Wednesday.

Harry Redknapp is not taking anything for granted as we prepare to face a Liverpool side currently struggling for form on Wednesday.

An FA Cup exit at the hands of Reading last week compounded by injuries to star players Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres are the latest blows suffered by the Reds on what has been a difficult season for them so far.

It began with a defeat at the Lane in August, and Rafa Benitez's men remain four points behind us in the race for a Champions League spot.

But Harry knows better than to expect anything else other than the toughest of tests in one of English football's most famous settings - although the manager admits this is not something his players will fear.

He said: "It is a difficult place to go. People talk about Liverpool not playing well but I have never been to Anfield and had an easy game.

"The support and atmosphere is fantastic. There is not a better stage in the country. It is a fantastic football arena. The fans always get behind their team and never turn on them, so it will be a difficult game again.

"But we will be looking to go there and be positive. The way our team is set up, we can't go and defend really. We are an open-looking team and we will give it our best shot to win the game."

And the lads will no doubt be buoyed by the prospect of stretching their lead over the Merseysiders to seven points as the race for the top four hots up.

However, Harry insists that no matter which way Wednesday night's crunch match goes, there is still a long way to go this season.

He added: "It's an important game but there are still lots of important games to go. It is still open. It is a much tighter league at the top and it's going to be exciting until the end of the season I think, which is good."

Highlights from Harry's pre-Liverpool press conference are now available on Spurs TV Online.
