Redknapp: Yesterday's win best ever

Queens Park Rangers’ boos Harry Redknapp has claimed that yesterday’s 1-0 win over Chelsea was one of his best ever victories.

Chelsea were entering the match in form, having won 7 of their last 8 matches, with QPR however started the game on the back of three consecutive defeats, and without an away win for over a year!

Chelsea dominated much of the game, but could only muster up two shots on target, from 26 shooting chances. This allowed Shaun Wright-Phillips goal for QPR to snatch all 3 points.

After the match, Redknapp told reporters: “I said to Joe Jordan after the game that I can’t remember having many better wins than this one.

“To come here against a Chelsea team who were absolutely flying and after the Liverpool and West Brom defeat, it was a great result for us.

“We changed it up, I stuck Adel Taarabt up front. He’s never played there before, but he gave us a focal point where we could hold the ball up. It was a good night.

“Liverpool was difficult. The way we set the team up, I felt the players didn’t really understand what we were trying to do. Yesterday we spent a couple of hours with them doing loads of shadow work, so everyone knew exactly where they should be.

“Most importantly, we worked hard. If they all graft, we’ve got a chance.”

Chelsea fans will no doubt be disappointed to lose a game they dominated, but you won’t win games without challenging the goalkeeper. I think Rafa didn’t give QPR enough respect and paid the price.
