You felt that with the way Spurs had been playing for most of this season that someone was due for a real hiding and while 5-0 represents an emphatic victory over Newcastle, a 4-0 score line at half time suggests that things could have been much worse for our visitors.
“We all felt it would be a tough game but we started so brightly,” said Harry after the match.
“We got the early goals and there was no danger after that. You hope for a start like that, but you can’t expect it.”
Harry also hailed his strike force, a pairing of Emmanuel Adebayor and Louis Saha that no Spurs fans would have been expecting at the start of January.
“Adebayor and Saha were unplayable in that early period and it set us up.
“The chances came along and we put them away, great finishing.
“We played some fantastic football and overall, it was a great all-round performance.”
With Chelsea losing to Everton – a win helped considerably by Steven Pienaar – our gap in third place is now ten points. After a trip to Stevenage this weekend, it’s the big one on Sunday week with a visit to the Emirates.
