Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe was delighted with his brace in victory over West Ham United.

The striker broke the deadlock in spectacular fashion in Sunday's 3-1 victory at the Lane.

"Kyle (Walker) pinged the ball into me and I thought 'wow, get that under control' but I managed to turn, ran with it and my first intention wasn't to shoot but it opened up and I just wanted to get a shot off," he told the Spurs website. "I was delighted when it went in.

"It's right up there in my goals for Spurs, top five. It's such a great feeling to get a goal like that, I'm sure you can imagine.

"I thought we deserved it, we had chances in the first half and it was important to get that goal before half-time.

"We came out in the second half more relaxed and the second goal was key, Gareth scored that and after that it was comfortable, to be honest."
