Neil Warnock insists that Leeds United's victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the FA Cup was "deserved".

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has insisted that his side deservedly won against Tottenham Hotspur at home on Sunday.

The Championship side defeated Spurs 2-1 at Elland Road to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

"It was a typical FA Cup game," BBC Sport quotes Warnock as saying. "They were like that when I was a kid. They played a strong team. To see Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and Scott Parker in that team and to beat them is fabulous because we had a very young side out.

"I thought we took care of Lennon and Bale very well. We scored two great goals and could have had a couple more. It was a fabulous advert for Leeds and the FA Cup.

"It was a great result and we deserved it. Some of our defending in the second half was fabulous. I'll probably open a bottle of champagne tonight and have a few little tipples. I'm sure I'll be able to do something like that. I might even treat myself to a bag of crisps."

Leeds will face Premier League champions Manchester City in the fifth round of the competition.
