The defender said the club's first league victory of the 2010/11 campaign was all the sweeter for having come against their fiercest local rivals.
"Everybody is buzzing about the win," he told whufc.com. "First of all, it's the three points and the first victory of the season in the Premier League and it also came in a local derby against Spurs and you don't get anything better than that. We're all very pleased.
"Derby matches are the same everywhere. It's a special atmosphere and the stadium is always packed. The games are always tight, as it should be, and that's what football is all about. They are the most intense games and that's what you want as a player and as a spectator as well."
