Terrific exhibition - Harry

Harry Redknapp couldn't speak highly enough of the performance as he assessed the fantastic 5-1 win at Hull on Wednesday night.

Jermain Defoe led the way with a hat-trick, scoring twice in the first half as we led 3-1 at the interval.

The striker completed his treble in injury time with Wilson Palacios - his first in the Premier League - and Robbie Keane also on target.

The victory took us to the top of the table on goal difference after two matches as we followed up Sunday's win against Liverpool.

"We looked dangerous every time we had the ball," said Harry at the KC Stadium.

"The movement, passing, the pace - I played with four forwards and we really took it to them.

"We hit them with pace and skill - we were difficult to live with.

"Defoe looked absolutely electric and he's so sharp but it wasn't just about him, Robbie Keane was excellent and the movement in midfield, the lads in there kept rotating and popping up in areas that made it difficult for Hull.

"The way we kept the ball and passed it was fantastic.

"We started well against Liverpool but I think this was even better, our general play was top class."
