Tottenham fans were absolutely delighted with the team’s performance and win over Crystal Palace on Sunday with many claiming it was reminiscent of how Spurs played in the 16/17 season when they pushed Chelsea all the way in the title race.

Pochettino has moved away a bit from his high pressing tactics for the past couple of years but the performance on Saturday proved that this team still has it in its locker.

Speaking after the game, Toby Alderweireld has said in an interview with the club that this is exactly how the team wants to play this season.

The defender, who put in a brilliant display in the game, also talked about his long passing and the assist he got for the opening goal.

One of the most pleasing things about the win was the fact that there were so many brilliant performances right from back to front. The defence was solid and showed their proficiency in playing out from the back while the midfield and attacking players did not give Palace any time on the ball. This is exactly the kind of performance that would give the team much-needed belief and confidence heading into a busy run of fixtures.
