He provided three terrific goals and single-handedly pushed his club into the next round of the FA Cup.

"In football always when you lose, after two defeats, it's hard to turn that feeling". We go into Thursday now coming off this result, we'll be buzzing to go at Wembley, so we're looking forward to it.

"It's been a tough week, not the best and we wanted to come here, get the win and progress to the next round", he said in an interview with Spurs TV. "We're very proud to have not only a player, but a man, with how he is".

Pochettino admitted that his side had spoken ahead of the tie after disappointing back-to-back defeats at the hands of Liverpool and KAA Gent:"We had some meetings at the training ground to try to find why and try to recover the feeling". So it was about icing it, compressing it, and making sure it was ready for the weekend.

Five minutes later, Tottenham were back down the other end when Kane slipped in Eriksen after stealing possession, only for the Denmark worldwide to send his effort high and wide from a tight angle after bearing down on goal. "I believe it shows that the club has faith in me and its ideal timing because it's given me a lot more confidence when I'm going out there to train every day, believing that I'm going in the right direction".

Meanwhile, Fulham boss, Slavisa Jokanovic, said: "Spurs showed us respect as Pochettino chose a very strong starting eleven".
