Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp was full of praise for Chelsea's Ramires after victory over Manchester City.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "I've never seen a midfielder gallop like him. He's not traditionally Brazilian but his power, speed and acceleration have won him 27 caps and he dashes through centre-field like a flying winger.

"He must be a nightmare to play against! It took him time to settle, but he is emerging as a central figure for Chelsea and his influence grows as a match unfolds. Opponents try to track him but he gets beyond them and draws fouls, such as the one that led to Gael Clichy's red card."
