Johnson insists they more than matched Spurs for the 1-1 result.
"People will say they didn't play well. But I don't think you can take credit away from us.
"We've seen their strengths and we've stopped them.
"Gareth Bale was terrific at our place last season. But we came here then and stopped him playing and did the same again this time.
"We got in their faces and made them play the way they did."
