Harry Redknapp is full of respect for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final opponents Portsmouth.

We meet at Wembley for the right to meet either Aston Villa or Chelsea - they play at 5pm today - in the FA Cup Final on May 15.

"It will be a hard game," said Harry. "They'll have four or five players who will come back and they'll make a difference.

"We were lucky to beat them down there (2-1 win in October) and I saw them beat Liverpool at home and they were excellent at Manchester City recently.

"They are very dangerous and they have players who can cause you problems. I also have a lot of respect for their manager, Avram Grant, and he will have them set-up right."

Sunday's trip to Wembley kicks-off a fascinating week as we then face Arsenal and Chelsea at the Lane on Wednesday (April 14) and Saturday (April 17) respectively.

"It's a massive week," he added. "We're fighting on two fronts and I would take either of them - if we do then what a fantastic season we've had. If we achieve none we've still moved forward a million per cent. If we could do both it would be incredible."
