Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with the character of his players after watching his Tottenham side win 2-1 away at Queens Park Rangers.
A brace from in-form Harry Kane lifted Tottenham up to sixth in the Premier League and will be looking to push on when we visit Old Trafford to take on Manchester United next Sunday.
Kane now has 16 Premier League goals so far this season.
Pochettino told BBC Sport: “I’m very proud of our performance, we showed big character against a difficult opponent on a difficult stage.
“We showed today the way we play and the character we have.
“The way QPR play is long ball and on the edge of the box, they have strength in the air through Bobby Zamora and Charlie Austin, but we handled it.
“The reaction after going out of Europe has been fantastic. It was difficult after the defeat against Fiorentina [in the Europa League].
“The response has been fantastic from the squad in the big games that have followed. We have to go away and train hard to focus on our next match against Manchester United.” I’m very proud of our performance, we showed big character against a difficult opponent on a difficult stage.
