Harry Redknapp heaped praise on Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe after he ended his two month absence from the starting line-up with the crucial second goal in a 3-1 win at West Brom.

Defoe made his first start in the Barclays Premier League since early October in place of the injured Rafael van der Vaart. He linked up well with two-goal Emmanuel Adebayor as Tottenham took their points tally to 28 from the last 10 games to maintain their push for a Champions League spot.

Redknapp said: "We lost Rafael with a hamstring injury but Jermain has been in fantastic form. We had a reserve game on Tuesday and he got five goals against Charlton and he looked so sharp. Some of his play in the second half today was fantastic."
