Harry Redknapp has reserved special praise for youngsters Jake Livermore and Tom Carroll, despite the duo being on the losing side in Tottenham's penalty shoot-out with Stoke in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.

After being unable to score in either normal or extra-time, the penalty shootout swung the way of the Potters, who were able to defeat Tottenham 7-6. Both Livermore and Carroll played the entire match, and Redknapp believes they will make an unstoppable midfield in the future.

"Jake Livermore and Tom Carroll in midfield were outstanding," Redknapp said.


"Tom is only a slip of a lad but a fantastic footballer, he really knows how to play the game. He's a lad with hardly any experience but he came in and played ever so well.

"Jake Livermore was top class. They are both improving and Jake is pushing for a place in the first team, he has a real chance. It was a good all-round performance."

Spurs may possibly see their Carling Cup exit as a blessing in disguise, with the side looking at a tough schedule juggling Europa League and Barclays Premier League matches.

In the next eight days, Spurs play Wigan away, Shamrock Rovers at White Hart Lane, and then face the tough task of overcoming cross-London rivals Arsenal, who will be desperate to get their season on track after the worst start to a season in 58 years.

Livermore and Carroll will both be important factors for Redknapp as he continues to try and keep his squad fit.
