Ledley King highlighted the importance of a winning start to Tottenham’s Premier League campaign.

Harry Redknapp’s side were 2-1 winners against Liverpool at White Hart Lane, courtesy of goals from Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Sebastien Bassong.

King told Sky Sports: “Yeah, it’s great.  Obviously after beginning last season so bad it was important we got off to a good start.  Liverpool is always going to be a tough side but the teamwork and work-rate we couldn’t have asked for anymore and we’re delighted.

“The way he (Bassong) was heading balls away, he is a great lad and a great athlete.  We’re happy to have him here.

“It’s the first game of the season and a hot day.  I thnk both teams were both a bit tentative, but when we picked up the pace we looked the most dangerous.  We’re a pacey team and when we caught them on the break we looked at our best.
