Antonio Conte praised Tottenham’s players after their 1-0 victory against Fulham.
Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game at Craven Cottage.
Conte’s position as Spurs boss has been the subject of some speculation and it was a much needed win.
“I had a good answer from my players. I asked them for the solidity of last season and the will and desire to fight and to be resilient,” he said.
“We showed when you play as a team it is difficult to play against us. Today has to be a starting point for us to give everything then we will see what happens at the end.”
