Redknapp eyes FA Cup glory

Harry Redknapp has set his sights on winning the FA Cup after Tottenham booked their place in the fourth round following a 4-0 demolition of Peterborough United.

Niko Kranjcar netted a brace and further strikes from Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane saw the north London ease their way into the hat for the next round.

Redknapp lifted the FA Cup with former club Portsmouth in 2008 and afterwards revealed he hoped to do the same with an in-form Tottenham this season.

"I put a good team out to win the game. You don't want to take liberties and winning is a good habit," he explained.

"I didn't want to put a weak team out and turn in a sloppy performance and then regret it afterwards.

"We've got a chance the same as all the big boys. We have a good squad and there was no reason for me to mess about too much today.

"We're not in Europe, we only have two competitions. It would be different if we were involved in a Carling Cup semi-final like Aston Villa and Blackburn or Manchester United and Man City. But I have no reason to rest anybody for next Sunday, it's a week away.

"Every game is important. There was a full house here. People paid good money to come and watch the game. It was important we turned in a good performance.

"It would be nice to see someone outside the big four win the cup again. There's a long way to go, but I like the way we are playing."
