NEVER IN DOUBT - HARRY

Harry Redknapp said he was never in any doubt that we'd turn performances back into results.
Much was made of our run of five games without a win in the Premier League between the derby defeat at the Emirates and Sunday's victory against Swansea.
Few could argue that displays against United, Everton and even Stoke deserved more and we then had the better of a goalless draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
We followed up by booking a place at Wembley in the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a quarter-final win against Bolton and then Sunday's fine 3-1 win over Swansea.
"I never felt we played badly, we were just unlucky," reflected Harry. "We’re playing well and we had a good week with Chelsea, Bolton and Swansea.
"I've been at clubs where the players look like their confidence has gone, but this lot have been fantastic, knocking the ball around in training and I just felt we were playing well and needed a little luck. I never had any doubts."
The win against Swansea took us level again with Arsenal in the battle for Champions League qualification.
"The key is finishing above Chelsea and Newcastle as well," said Harry.
"Four teams are scrapping it out and there's not a lot in it with seven games to go, us and Arsenal level, five points to Chelsea and Newcastle.
"Now we play Saturday and Monday, a long trip up to Sunderland, Norwich at home - two tough games. Everyone will be juggling their resources. It will be the survival of the fittest."
