Anton Walkes admitted it has been a fairly action-packed week for him personally.
"It's a pleasure to get out there and get some minutes underneath my belt," Walkes, who replaced Ben Davies in the 80th minute, told Spurs TV.
"It's been tough this season so far but I've just got to keep on pushing and pushing.
"Getting experience today and playing with such a great team, seeing fellow teammates get on as well and some even starting, it's unbelievable.
He added: "It's been a crazy week.
"It was hard to pick myself up in the morning to go again on Tuesday but once I got the news I was going to be in the squad, I quickly got out of that, and then I was ready.
"I got the opportunity and the week's turned around."
