HARRY Redknapp said the origins of QPR's famous win against Chelsea lay in his determination to avoid the tactical mistakes made against Liverpool on Sunday.
The Rangers boss admitted his team had a muddled approach to the game against the Reds and this time, his players were spot on.
“The message didn't quite get through how we wanted to play,” said the Hoops boss.
“Some were pressing up high and some were dropping back and we started the game as if we didn't know what was going on.
“We've got some French lads, some Spanish lads, from all over the place and you've got to get your message across plain and clear and I did that yesterday with them.
“We spent a couple of hours going through absolutely everything, so everybody knew exactly where they were.”
Redknapp added: “I had to make sure we didn't press high up the pitch. We were going to drop into our own half and look to press from there and I thought we did that well tonight – hitting them on the break when we could.
“I stuck Adel [Taarabt, pictured] up front. He's never played there before, but at least he gave us a focal point where we could hold the ball up and we could get people up to play with him.
“We worked hard and we've got to work hard for the rest of the season. If we do, we'll win some games away from home.”
