I thought we went out of the back door a bit in the second half. It's been an incredibly tough season right the way through from start to finish but yet again it epitomised everything about this season. Support absolutely superb, get off to a really good start again. And yet again, it's both boxes.

We have glorious opportunities to go 2-0 up after 20 minutes, and there's only one team in it for the first 20 or 25 minutes. They have one opportunity through our bad play, we should play forward and go back inside. My right centre-half thinks it's right to go charging forward and open everything up, there's a tackle missed and a block missed. So you go one mistake, and think, yet again, can we cut that out by rectifying it?

It goes one, two, three and then you look at the Premier League and Kulusevski and the finish he finds into the bottom corner. And against the run of play we find ourselves 1-0 down and it put a pin in the balloon straight away, with what it did for the boys' confidence and belief. And I think you saw the attitude of the team and the group really, it shone right through in that particular moment. And I've got to say it was pretty comfortable for Spurs for 70 minutes."
