While his first was a simple close-range shot after good work from Emmanuel Adebayor, his second was more memorable, bursting through the middle before supplying a deft finish over Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy.

The win lifted Spurs to within seven points of Manchester City and Manchester United, with the London club still holding a game in hand at home to Everton next month. It also moved Redknapp's team four points clear of Chelsea, which may have dropped out of title contention by drawing 1-1 at home to Fulham on Monday.

Arsenal is a further point back after being held 1-1 by Wolverhampton earlier on Tuesday.
