QPR Manager Harry Redknapp has stated that Tottenham are a different team since they sold Gareth Bale - and miss his quality.
Andre Villas-Boas took over from the Englishman in 2012, while Redknapp took some time out before going on to join QPR, only to see his side face relegation from the Premier league, and Tottenham to qualify for the Europa League, just missing out on the top four.
But recently the north London side took on Manchester City, and faced a 6-0 drubbing at the Etihad Stadium, conceding the first goal within the first 15 seconds.
The 66-year-old stated this week that this was a different Tottenham side to what he is used to seeing.
"Tottenham looks like a bunch of strangers on Sunday," Redknapp told the Daily Mail, "they have a lot of attacking options, but too many players are similar."
QPR sit third in the Championship having beaten Charlton Athletic on the weekend 1-0; Charlie Austin with the winner.
The former West Ham boss then continued to state how Bale was a key player for Spurs.
He added: "When they had Gareth Bale, he was such a fantastic talent, he would pull them out of any trouble."
Since Bale left, Tottenham haven't been able to score more than two goals in a league game since the start of the campaign, and in their last three league games haven't even scored a goal.
The north London outfit's next match is at home to Manchester United followed by fixtures against Fulham and Sunderland.
