He accepts that supporters are likely to grow frustrated when Spurs struggle to break down visiting sides who adopt defensive tactics.
“It’s difficult,” he said. “People want end-to-end games because they’ve paid good money to watch exciting football but sometimes, it’s not like that. Teams will come and put seven men behind the ball. We do it in training, where we play five against 10, and they never score. We got the win against Hull, which is all that matters. The style of football we are playing now is a little different from a couple of years ago..
“It’s about attacking. There is pace and power throughout the squad and it’s exciting. We need to create a few more clear chances for players like Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe to get on the end of, but if we keep winning 1-0, then I will take that.”
