It was a relieving victory for Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose side entered the match at Turf Moor on a two-game skid, ahead of a clash with Manchester United this weekend in League play.

“Defensively we were spot on,” said Nuno. “It was tough, what we expected, but we played a good game, controlled the game, had good possession and created chances.

“It was a deserved win. It is about managing all situations, we are in the competition and did our job in a very nice way so we must congratulate our players.”
