Harry Redknapp revealed his QPR team got too wrapped up in keeping Spurs at bay - and watched them pay the price.
Redknapp said: “You can drive yourself mad worrying too much about the opposition. “Against Tottenham we were too worried about dropping into our shape, and in the end everybody was going out there worried about what they had to do, and where we would be 10 minutes into the game and all of that.
“In the end, you forget to play yourselves. There’s nothing like getting out there with energy and then having a go. You’ve got to compete.
