Harry Redknapp felt we were always in control as we beat Aston Villa 2-0 in the Premier League on Monday night.

Harry Redknapp felt we were always in control as we beat Aston Villa 2-0 in the Premier League on Monday night.

Emmanuel Adebayor's goals after 14 and 40 minutes secured an eighth win in our last nine matches and moved us up to third in the table.

The striker could have scored a few more on the night as we dictated possession throughout.

Rafa van der Vaart, outstanding in the first half, also went close, Kyle Walker's 25-yarder arrowed just wide and our dominance was underlined by Scott Parker getting forward for a couple of late efforts at goal.

"We played some great stuff," said Harry, back in the dugout for first the first time after his recent heart surgery.

"We had one or two clear-cut chances before we scored the first goal, then scored the second and had three or four good opportunities in the second half.

"I always felt we were in control. We controlled the tempo of the game. Luka was fantastic and we looked very assured at the back. Younes Kaboul's heading was incredible, he dominated.

"I was pleased with the whole team. I thought back to front we were solid, we kept possession, moved the ball well.

"I think Villa are a decent team but we restricted them to very few opportunities.

"There were lots of good performances and it was a good, all-round team performance. I love watching us play and I thought we were great."
