Tottenham narrowed the gap between themselves and Chelsea to four points after their 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld believes the win was the perfect response to their FA Cup loss to the Blues. He also insisted Tottenham want to put pressure on Chelsea.
“It was a very important win in a difficult away game,” Alderweireld said.
“We know Crystal Palace have won against big teams but we played in a very adult way. We did not give them any chances and we know we have the quality and the creativity up front to make the difference.
“We want to put pressure on Chelsea. They won and of course we want to catch them. We fought as a team and did very well. The only thing we can do is try to win our games.
“We know it is going to be difficult but that is all we can do. This was a good response after the FA Cup semi-final. We are back in it.
“We showed character after Saturday and are back on track. That is very important, if you get a setback to respond immediately.”
