So it's not rocket science after all. With Spurs holding a narrow 1-0 lead over Wigan and unable to press home their advantage on a quagmire of a pitch, Harry Redknapp brought on Luka Modric and Roman Pavlyuchenko for the closing stages. The result? Two goals for Pavlyuchenko, the first of them set up beautifully by Modric, who himself hit the post.

During the January transfer window, it seemed that Harry Redknapp's unique approach was to try to bring back all of the players who had left the club in the previous twelve months. Now in the summer he has accomplished what was clearly his real ambition - building a team that includes both the tallest and the shortest player in the Premier League.

Spurs kept their hopes of Europa League qualification alive with yet another 1-0 home win, in this case over bottom club West Bromwich Albion. On the face of it, the race for seventh spot looks finely balanced, with Spurs level on points with Man City and Fulham, and just one behind West Ham, the leaders of this four-team "mini league".
Yet while both Fulham and West Ham face a bottom three club as part of their run ins, Spurs have away trips to Goodison and Anfield to come. A top ten finish may be as much as the team can hope for this season.
