Spurs had previously recovered from behind to beat Bournemouth and Chelsea in their last two Premier League outings, and the Denmark international insists that the never-say-die attitude is clear to see.
"I think people know by now we won't lie down," he told Spurs TV. "When we scored, we felt like we should win 2-0, 3-0, 4-0. We had the chances to score more goals but the last pass maybe wasn't good enough.
"We had a few mistakes in midfield which gave them a lot of chances the other way and that's what kept them in the game, but we got the win again."
Tottenham are 10 points in front of fifth-placed Chelsea ahead of the visit of Manchester City next weekend.
