JD 'electric'

Harry Redknapp described Jermain Defoe as 'unplayable' after his hat-trick at Hull.

The striker was at his explosive best as we ran out 5-1 winners at the KC Stadium to go top of the Barclays Premier League.

'JD' drilled home his first after 10 minutes, smashed home his second just before half-time and then capped the lot with a thunderbolt in injury time.

He was joined on the scoresheet by Robbie Keane and Wilson Palacios as we enjoyed a performance to remember on Humberside.

"He's bang in form, absolutely electric and as strong as I've ever seen him - and remember, I've known him since he was 14," beamed Harry after Wednesday night's win at the KC.

"He was at Portsmouth at the start of last season but he looks stronger in the way he holds up the ball and holds players off.

"He's done a lot of work with the fitness coaches in the summer and it's made him even more explosive, he has a lot more power and upper body strength.

"He looks so sharp and he's in unbelievable form at the moment - if he continues to play like that, he'll have no problems."
