Harry Redknapp enjoyed a successful return to the Tottenham dugout as his side moved into third place in the Barclays Premier League table with an easy 2-0 win over Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored his fourth and fifth goals of the campaign in a hugely one-sided affair that should have seen the former Arsenal striker take home the match ball. Adebayor put Spurs ahead with a brilliant scissor kick in the 14th minute before he took advantage of a mix-up between Shay Given and James Collins to stab home for his second.

Luka Modric, Rafael van der Vaart and Scott Parker were all outstanding on Redknapp's comeback.
