Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has admitted his sides big win over Newcastle was important for helping them trust the work they are doing.
Spurs fell behind in the first-half as Hugo Lloris was unable to keep out Fabian Schar’s low free kick. However, they drew level shortly after as Ben Davies headed home.
They then cruised to victory in the second-half thanks to goals from Matt Doherty, Heung-Min Son, Emerson Royal and Steven Bergwijn.
The win moves Spurs above Arsenal and into the top four and Conte was delighted with his sides performance.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Italian said: “When you see your team play this way, you enjoy. We played a really good game. Newcastle is not easy to face them. They try to be compact and deep to not concede great space. Despite that we went 1-0 down and scored.
“In the second half we controlled the game and had the chances to secure the result. Newcastle is well prepared and have good players. We are in a good moment. The team is growing in every aspect. The work we are doing is paying off.

“It is important for me as I see the players every day the commitment of my players. A good result is important for the trust in the work we are doing. Sometimes it is hard work but when you see this you trust in what you are doing.
“I like to be honest and clear in every moment with my players. I arrive in November and it wad difficult to out a target on the season. I find difficult in many aspects.
“But now I have had the work of five or six months, to work and bring my idea of football and mentality. If players do not want to improve and make themselves a different level it is difficult for the coach.
“But I thank my players, From the first day they have shown commitment and desire to improve.
“Having more days to work with the team is helping us. When you come in during the season you have to prepare game and game and game. You miss situations.
“I have more time to transfer my ideas of football. This is very important, to have time. We can improve. This performance, like the last one, has to give us great confidence.
“In England this league is very difficult but to play against us is not easy in this moment.”
