Swansea 0-2 Spurs - reaction
02 January 2018|Tottenham Hotspur
Reaction direct from the dressing room after our 2-0 win against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night.
"The conditions were difficult and for the players, horrible. We played well and deserved the victory overall. The conditions weren't the best to play football but we tried to play our football and the effort was fantastic. Now we need to recover quickly and be ready to play against West Ham (on Thursday night).
"It was a big night for Fernando and I'm so happy for him to contribute and help the team win the three points. That's always so important for the strikers. I'm so pleased for Victor as well. He played well. He's had a lot of months out and I'm happy to see him back again."
"I'm very happy to score my first goal in the Premier League for Tottenham and help the team. It was a difficult game in difficult conditions but the important thing was we were focused and aggressive. We wanted to play and move the ball quickly. We controlled the game and played really well, especially in the first half.
"There was no pressure on me (coming in for Harry Kane) - for me, it was an amazing opportunity."
"It's been a very tough time for me but I'm strong and I've fought my way back. My team-mates have helped me come through it. I feel better and it's good to be back. Now I'm focusing on staying injury free and trying to help the team.
"Swansea is a difficult place to come to at this time because they are fighting against relegation, so it was good to take the three points. It was a good team performance and everyone fought for the team. We showed character and that we can dig in in tough times."
