Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham have the potential to become a 'really good side' following their latest victory in the Barclays Premier League over Wigan.

Rafael van der Vaart opened the scoring at the DW Stadium on Saturday, before Gareth Bale further extended Spurs' advantage.

The home side responded in the second-half through Mohamed Diame, but had Steve Gohouri sent off, and Spurs held on for their third consecutive league win.

Despite the narrow margin of victory, Redknapp was pleased with what he saw from his charges, who were initially disrupted by the late withdrawal of Jermain Defoe.

And, following the three points, Redknapp waxed lyrical about his Spurs side and was optimistic about their potential.

"There's players missing, but that's not far away from our best team," Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"I'm not saying it's our best team, but there's enough good players in there to make it very difficult to dislodge them out of our best team.

"We're very, very strong and I think we've got the makings of a really good side.

"We lost Jermain Defoe, who was ill overnight and had a high temperature. We had to get a driver to drive him back to London to get him home.

"Sandro came back today alongside Scott Parker and I liked the look of that combination in there. It gave us some strength and I think we're looking strong."
