Spurs left it late to beat their London rivals on Saturday as Eric Dier's 90th-minute goal separated the teams at Upton Park.

"[It's a] big win and also a very tough game against West Ham, but we are very happy," Pochettino told Sky Sports News. "Congratulations to my players and supporters. We played like a team, this is the important thing."
