Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp played down any feud between Jermain Defoe and Giovani dos Santos after their FA Cup win over Cheltenham.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp played down any feud between Jermain Defoe and Giovani dos Santos after their FA Cup win over Cheltenham.

Dos Santos looked visibly irked when Defoe dived in to tap home from close range to deny him the opener in the 24th minute.

Redknapp refused to condemn Defoe for poaching Dos Santos' goal, however, admitting the former West Ham man's actions are typical of a predatory striker.

Redknapp said: "Jermain's a goalscorer, he wants to score all the time.

"He said it was going wide."
