Replay would be perfect for Redknapp

Jamie Redknapp believes it would be the ‘perfect scenario’ if the Cherries could force a replay when two of his former clubs meet this weekend.

Liverpool visit the south coast on Saturday for a FA Cup fourth round tie and Redknapp hopes the club who gave him his professional debut can earn the chance to play the Reds on Merseyside.

“I would like it to be a draw and then for Bournemouth to go and play at Anfield,” he told Matchday, which goes on sale this Saturday and is available to pre-order.

“It would be great for some of those players to play there because walking out with the fans signing You Will Never Walk Alone would be something they would never forget.

“That would be the perfect scenario and I would be a happy man if that happened.”

Redknapp added that he felt Luis Suarez is the player who could make the difference for Liverpool as they look to win the competition for an eighth time.

“Sometimes a player sets a team apart as we saw with Robin van Persie at Manchester United last season and Gareth Bale at Tottenham. That’s what Suarez is doing this year,”
he said.

“If you took him out of the side, then they would be a good team but they wouldn’t be a great one. He’s taking them to another level pretty much single-handedly.

“I played with Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard, but he is doing things that I’ve never seen before.

“This guy is sensational. If I was a Liverpool fan going to a game, I would think whatever happens, I’m going to see something special today. Not many players give you that value for money.”
