We're looking sharp - Harry

Harry Redknapp was impressed with the performance as we toppled Olympiacos 3-0 in Sunday's final pre-season friendly.

Roman Pavlyuchenko, Vedran Corluka and Jermain Defoe bagged the goals in the second half against the Greek champions at White Hart Lane.

Peter Crouch - who went close twice in the first half - and Sebastien Bassong made their Spurs debuts while Ledley King came through his first 45 minutes of the summer.

"It was another step up and I was well pleased with how we played," said Harry.

"It was a good performance and result against a good side who had a big result in the Champions League (beat Slovan Bratislava 4-0 on aggregate) last week.

"I was particularly pleased with how we moved the ball around, our movement and all the strikers are looking sharp, so that's ideal for us.

"We have four strikers and they are all top players. Jermain scored, Pav scored, Crouchy was terrific for us in the first half and we all know what Robbie's about."

So the build-up to next Sunday's mouth-watering opener against Liverpool at home in the Barclays Premier League now starts in earnest.

"It's a tough one to start with but a great game to look forward to," added Harry. "Liverpool are a fantastic team but we're in good form as well. I'm sure it will be a terrific game."
