Mauricio Pochettino was delighted after his Tottenham side earned a 1-1 draw at Arsenal to stretch their unbeaten start to the Premier League season to 11 games.
Spurs were up against it at half-time in the north London derby following Kevin Wimmer’s own goal but Harry Kane – making his first appearance since mid-September after an ankle injury – secured the visitors a point from the penalty spot.
“I’m very happy with the performance,” Pochettino told BT Sport 1.
“I think we played well at a very difficult place. Arsenal are on a very good run and have momentum.
“Our players deserve full credit today – they were fantastic.
“We showed big, big character to get back into the game.”
Meanwhile, Kane hopes he convinced England boss Gareth Southgate he is fit to face Scotland in next week’s World Cup qualifier.
“I’m ready if called upon by England,” said Kane. “I’m feeling good and the ankle feels fine.”
