Mauricio Pochettino gives his reaction to the team’s first home win of the season.
His side were left frustrated after a resolute Crystal Palace kept Spurs at by for much of the match before new boy Victor Wanyama scored late on in his first competitive match at White Hart Lane.
Speaking to the BBC, Pochettino also commented: “It’s important to win the three points in the first game at home. I think we fully deserved it.
“I am happy for Victor [Wanyama]. It’s important to score and feel the love of the supporters, and I am happy with Vincent [Janssen] – he was fantastic and created a lot of chances. The supporters see he is a fighter.
“Dele Alli had some problems – he was ill for three days this week and not 100%. We have a lot of games with the Champions League this season and we have to manage them to be in a better condition for the season.”
