Jamie Redknapp has lavished praise on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro following the Brazilian's impressive display at Carrow Road on Tuesday night.

The prodigiously gifted holding midfielder has had to bide his time at Tottenham this season after injuries curtailed his involvement earlier in the year.

The aforementioned Sky Sports pundit, who is also the son of Spurs' boss Harry Redknapp, believes the form of Scott Parker has inevitably inhibited Sandro's starts for Tottenham this season but he claims the towering 22-year-old is ideally suited to Premier League football.

Redknapp believes Sandro is now worthy of a starting berth at Tottenham and intimates the midfield trio of Parker, Modric and the Brazilian could prove a hugely potent asset as the north London Premier League club bid to sustain their title challenge.

"Sandro has had to be patient for his chances this season with Scott Parker in such outstanding form." Redknapp told the Daily mail, while discussing Tottenham's midfield Brazilian. "He hurt his knee playing for Brazil in the summer and then found himself out of the Spurs side.

"He's a powerhouse of a player who is suited to the English game. He cuts out danger, gets around the pitch and could even play at centre half.

"He's tall, quick and strong, and will be a regular for his country. Spurs need to give him regular games. As last night showed, Parker, Luka Modric and Sandro work so well together." The former Spurs midfielder concluded.

Last night's victory ensured Tottenham maintained the pace behind joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester United. Harry Redknapp's side are just seven points behind and have a game in hand over their rivals.
