The selfless full-back went on to reaffirm his intention to give his all when called upon - even if it's not in his preferred role.
"Left-back isn't my position, but you have to go out there and do a job for the team and that's what I've always tried to do," he told the Spurs website.
"With it being a win and a clean sheet, I hope I've done a good job.
"We're on a good run, we need to keep it going and with the team we've got at the moment, strength on the bench as well, it's looking good."
