Harry Redknapp has vowed Tottenham will go on the attack in Tuesday’s Champions League encounter with Milan.
Spurs meet the Italian league leaders in the first leg of their last-16 showdown.
Having seen his side score 18 goals in six group matches, Redknapp believes that Spurs should maintain their attacking approach in the San Siro.
Redknapp said: “Attacking football is what got us here in the first place. We have had a go all through this competition so we will have a right go again at San Siro.
“We can score here. I don’t want to concede bags of goals for sure. We can’t afford to make mistakes but as far as shutting up shop goes it’s a non-starter because we don’t have the players here.
“We want to win tomorrow, it’s important to get a good result.
Tottenham are familiar with the San Siro having already played Inter at the stadium in the group stages.
“The atmosphere in these international competitions is always very good, and we already proved that we can do well in Europe.
Spurs’ plans have been hit by injury problems, with Gareth Bale, who impressed home and away against Inter during the group stage, their key absentee.
Redknapp must now decide who to employ Croatian playmaker Niko Kranjcar, who has been among the goals in the Premier League of late, but has had few opportunities on the European stage this season.
On his selection poser, Redknapp said: “The most difficult part of this job is leaving people out of the team but to be fair Niko just got on with it, kept working hard and got back in.
“Niko genuinely is a great lad. He never came in to tell me he didn’t want to travel away from home or anything.”
