Werner praises team-mates after breaking Spurs duck

Timo Werner praised his team-mates after scoring his first Tottenham goal.

Werner found the net in a resounding 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.

“They stood behind me at half-time and said I should keep going,” Werner said.

“It always feels good that you have a group that says nothing about it. They were supportive. It helps me and the whole team.”

Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was full of praise for his team.

“Persistence, some quality, belief. It wasn’t easy game with them sitting so deep,” Postecoglou said.

“We needed a goal to open them up but still kept composed and disciplined. When they got their goal it was only time they got the ball in our half. The reaction was outstanding.

“It was a game we should have won a lot more comfortably but we had real belief in the process and were not getting swayed by things not going our way. I thought the mentality was first rate.”
