Redknapp: Draw At Swansea City Was Fair

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was full of praise for Swansea City after the two sides drew 1-1 on New Year's Eve.

After some poor performances lately, the Swans were back to their best to battle out for a well-deserved point against a Spurs side looking to challenge with the two Manchester sides for the Premier League title.

Van Der Vaart scored just before half time before Scott Sinclair benefited from Freidel's error to net home the equaliser with just minutes six remaining.

The Swans dominated large periods of the game, having 56% possession which made it hard for 3rd-placed Spurs to increase their lead in the second half.

Redknapp said:

'Swansea are a very good side,''

'Brendan Rodgers is doing a great job because it's amazing the way they pass the ball around for a newly-promoted side.

'The belief Brendan has been able to instil in these players is top class. Brendan's done absolute miracles with the way they play.

'They don't just kick the ball down field and hope that something's going to happen. They pass the ball, build from the back and it is great to watch. They're a threat, the widemen have got pace and they're a good team.

'It just shows you what you can do with people when you give them a bit of belief and he's got them believing in the way they play.

'It's great to see a team try to pass the ball like that; they make angles, they all want the ball and they're a real credit. They're top class.


Redknapp insists Swansea City mustn't change their style of play as they look to avoid relegation:

'We were hanging on a bit towards the end and they deserved their goal, but not many teams are going to come to Swansea this season and get three points.

'It's a difficult place to come; just look at their home record, look at the low number of goals they've conceded and you can see why when you see them play.

'It's not as if they play defensively, they get people forward and they pass the ball fantastically.

'They've got to keep playing like that. If they lose a game people will say they have got to go direct, but do that and you will go down.''
