The Argentine coach credited the French stopper with playing a key role in the victory and described him as one of the best keepers in the world.
"Hugo Lloris was fantastic and showed why he is one of the best in the world. I am happy, three points puts us in a good position," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying.
"The team came back from a difficult loss. They were disappointed after Manchester United. Watford were free to play, no pressure, they are safe, for us it is a massive pressure to take three points.
"Three games ahead, I think we are in a good situation. To win the games and finish in the top four for the first time [consecutively] would be great for the club."
Spurs are currently fourth in the league table, one point behind Liverpool in third, but they have a game in hand on the Reds.
