The Spaniard, a £17m summer signing from Malaga, also scored in that game and admits he would love to see an action replay this weekend.
He said: “The week before we played Tottenham at home, I kept being told how we had to beat them because they were ‘the rival’ and our neighbours.
“I’d never experienced such a great derby before and it was fantastic to be part of it.
“It was a good all-round performance. As you know, Adebayor’s sending off made it easier for us as they had already gone ahead.
“It was tough, but facing 10 men for the majority of the game allowed us to beat them.
“I remember the game well. I scored and it was my first derby. It was also a great victory for the fans.
“I hope things go the same way as that game!”
