Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was delighted with their performance for victory over West Ham United.
Jermain Defoe put Tottenham ahead just before half-time with a marvellous solo effort that began with him pinching the ball off Winston Reid and ended with him powering a dipping shot past Jussi Jaaskelainen from 20 yards.
"I think it was a very good performance," Villas-Boas said.
"We have been chasing a good, solid 90-minute performance for a while and we got it today very deservingly.
"It was extremely important to get back to winning ways - particularly against a team who has been doing well in a London derby."
