Redknapp says Spurs in FA Cup to win it

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he selected as strong a line-up as he could to beat FA Cup opponents Watford.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he selected as strong a line-up as he could to beat FA Cup opponents Watford.

They won without the injured Gareth Bale thanks to Rafael van der Vaart's 42nd-minute strike — one of just six efforts created by out-of-sorts Spurs, compared to 19 for the Hornets.

Redknapp said: "For sure, we want to go all the way to Wembley this year, that's the aim. We want to win the FA Cup and we'll give it our best shot.

"That's what we're looking to do, so I didn't take any liberties with the side.

"That's as tough as any game we've had away from home.

"We rode our luck, we are not usually hanging on like that and our winning goal was against the run of play."
