Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp fears his midfield lacks the creativity to unlock defences.

Redknapp says they miss Luka Modric when he is unavailable, like in defeat to Wigan Athletic.

"I have felt all along with us that we lack that bit extra when teams sit back," he said. "We need that bit of flair. We’ve got no real dribblers if (Luka) Modric doesn’t play.

"Chelsea, United and Arsenal are stronger than us. We lacked ideas and, the longer it goes on, it becomes harder and harder. People have got to have the courage to come and accept the ball.

"People turn up and expect you to win, don’t they? But we knew it wouldn’t be that easy. I have never really mentioned Inter and Werder Bremen. I know how important it is to get a win against Wigan."
