Harry Redknapp says our style of play will always matter most to him.

Harry Redknapp says our style of play will always matter most to him.

The manager was delighted with the football produced in the first half of Sunday's win against Everton.

We led 2-0 at the break after Roman Pavlyuchenko's opener and a wonderful strike from Luka Modric following approach play with his Croatian compatriots Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar.

Many saw it as one our best halves of football of the season, not least taking the quality of opponents into account.

Everton hit back in the second half and we had to show the other side to our character to hold on for a vital 2-1 victory that moved us back into fourth in the Premier League.

We now turn our attention back to the FA Cup and a quarter-final tie at Fulham on Saturday - the winners go to Wembley for the semi-finals.

"We've got to keep going," said Harry. "We're up there and it's a great position to be in.

"The most important thing is the way we play and the way we played in the first half against Everton, the football we played, the way we passed the ball, the way we moved the ball, our movement off the ball, it was fantastic.

"I enjoy that and I enjoy managing a team that plays like that. That will always been important to me.

"Whatever happens, we've had a real go, especially when you look at where we were last season and the points we've got so far this season. It's been fantastic."
