Stoke City's players were delighted with their victory over Tottenham.
Glenn Whelan struck the winner and teammate Matthew Etherington declared: "Player for player, technically, Tottenham are probably a better team than us but we know what our advantages are and what we can do. We have players who cause teams problems going forward too. It's a perfect mixture.
"The manager tells us when there are times to bang it forward. But sometimes we get the ball going. In the last 20 minutes we were passing it about. We do have that side to our game and it's coming more and more. We get stereotyped but that's fine. As long as we get the results, I don't care."
