Mauricio Pochettino is happy with Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 Premier League win over a "tough" Crystal Palace side at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino has declared himself satisfied with Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 win over a "tough" Crystal Palace side at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The Eagles, bottom of the Premier League, created the better opportunities against a Spurs side who had claimed a famous 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid in midweek.

Stand-in goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, however, kept Palace at bay, and Son Heung-min's second-half strike proved to be the difference between the sides.

"It was a tough game for us after Wednesday," Pochettino told BBC Sport. "Palace were compact, narrow and playing on the counter attack. We had the possession but not many chances. They were fresh after one week to prepare for the game.

"We had a few problems after the Madrid game and that's why I'm so happy with the victory. In the end though I'm very pleased with an important three points.

"I'm so happy for the different players who came in, people like Paulo who played fantastically well. He is an unbelievable option to have as a keeper and I'm really happy for him and his family that he performed like that.

"It was always going to be a challenge today but it means a lot to pick up the three points. It's a massive achievement for us to take us into the international break."

The result sees Spurs remain third in the table and keep up the pressure on Manchester City and Manchester United.
