Harry's dynamic duo

Harry Redknapp is convinced Luka Modric and Robbie Keane will bring the best out of each other.

The pair played together for the first time in the derby draw against Arsenal last weekend following Robbie's return from Liverpool.

It looks a match made in football heaven. "I think they will enjoy playing together," said Harry. "They are both fantastic footballers, great competitors and you can see them straight on the same wavelength in training.

"People look at Luka and think he is a marvellous little footballer, but you saw him in central midfield in the Stoke game - against a strong physical team - and he ran the show.

"Top players like Robbie and Luka will feed off each other," added Harry, before speaking more about Luka after the Croatian midfielder's performance against the Gunners.

"He's a fantastic little footballer, an amazing talent.

"I played him on the left against Arsenal to balance up the team, he can do that job and we worked hard in training getting him coming off the line, picking balls up in the little holes between the back four and their midfield and he did that well.

"When he gets on the ball he's a fantastic player."
