Spurs 2-0 Brighton - reaction from Wembley
13 December 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Reaction direct from the dressing room at Wembley after our hard-earned 2-0 win against Brighton in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
"It was tough, very tough. I'm happy in the end to win and three points is so important for us. I'm so pleased with the effort and the performance. It was a night to be patient, try to build and to play, play, pass, pass until finding the best option. The team was very good. I'm happy with the performance and it's good to be back in the top four."
"Normally it's not my thing to score with a header but I'm really happy to score for the first time with my head for Tottenham. Maybe I last scored with a header three years ago. Honestly, I'm so happy to get the three points. It was tough. They defended well, 11 men in their half and it's difficult, sometimes you need a little luck. Everyone is so proud of Serge and I'm laughing because he's my good friend."
"I'm happy for the team, to score my first goal for Tottenham and for the victory. It's very important for the team."
"Of course we know Serge didn't do it on purpose but we're all happy for him because he came (to the Club) this season and it's important for him to play and especially when you score your first goal for your new team you are very proud. It was a tough game and when Serge scored his goal it was good for us. In the end, we're all happy because it's an important three points and we keep winning."
