Chris Hughton felt Edgar Davids' display against Portsmouth was his best to date in a Spurs shirt. The team and crowd were clearly lifted by a number of the midfielder's 50-50 tackles, successful one-on-one duels and non-stop energy as we came from behind to beat Pompey on Monday night.

He was quite rightly awarded the Man of the Match champagne by Sky Sports and just gets better and better.

Coach Chris said: "It's part of a team's make up that you will have creative players and players dominant in other areas and Edgar is fully aware of the strengths he has. He's getting fitter. When he came us in the summer he'd been working very hard in pre-season but he'd missed out on a lot of football work and games at the end of last season.

"As each game and each week has gone by he's got fitter and fitter and it's showing. I felt that it was his best game so far."
