Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou speaking to BBC MOTD:

"Yeah it was [tough physically] and it's what you expect when you come here. They are a strong team and they sit compact so you have to be patient. I thought we handled it OK. Disappointed not to get a better outcome but a tough game."

On the goal: "It was a well-worked move. We have been working on that. A couple of other times we just weren't in the right areas."

On Timo Werner being in better positions: "We are working with all the guys all the time to try to get a better understanding. I thought in the front third, some of our decision-making and clarity of thought let us down a little bit."

On Yves Bissouma's performance: "I thought he was outstanding. Yves did the defensive work which was always going to be important today. The general effort from the lads was strong. It's a tough place to come.

"There's a lot of games to go still. I will be very surprised if all games aren't tight. Everyone is fighting for something. We have to maintain our levels."
