Harry Redknapp paid tribute to an 'outstanding' performance from Tottenham following their 3-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
Spurs were superb in the first half as goals from Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart gave them a 2-0 lead at the interval.
QPR battled back after the break and reduced their arrears through Jay Bothroyd in the 62nd minute, but another stunning goal from Bale clinched all three points for Spurs.
Redknapp admitted after the final whistle that his team had been made to work hard but was full of praise for the overall display.
"It was a fantastic performance," he said. "In the first half we played some great football and moved the ball quickly. The movement and passing was incredible.
"They changed how they played, got it forward and played with more intensity in the second half but Gareth finished them off with a great goal.
"Suddenly they got a lifeline at 2-1 and it changes games so that third goal was important. I said at half-time we shouldn't relax in the second half but, to be fair to them, they came out and raised their game.
"Overall we were outstanding today."
Redknapp also praised midfielder Scott Parker and the contribution he has made since making the switch to the North London club.
"Scott is a fantastic player," he added. "He was top of my list and he's just what we need.
"He tackles, doesn't give the ball away and he's a great boy and fantastic person. He's what you build great football clubs around."
