Harry Redknapp saluted his Tottenham side after they beat Fulham 2-0 to consolidate fourth place.
Spurs have dropped points in recent weeks but they produced an impressive performance at White Hart Lane and secured victory thanks to goals from Peter Crouch and David Bentley.
Redknapp was relieved to return to winning ways and pleased with every aspect of Tottenham's display.
"We have been playing well but we've come up against some goalkeepers in good form and it was important to get the three points," he told Sky Sports.
"It was a good performance and I felt we deserved the win.
"Fulham had a bit of possession late on but our keeper didn't have a lot to do."
Redknapp believes Bentley still has a lot to offer after he made a rare start on the right wing and capped a lively display with the crucial second goal.
"I'm well pleased with David tonight. He came in and gave a good performance," praised the manager.
"He is a very talented player and he showed that. This is what we ask from him, that he can come in and take his opportunities."
The only concern for Redknapp was a shoulder injury suffered by goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes in the early stages.
He managed to complete the match but Redknapp is unsure about the extent of the problem.
"Our keeper got a knock in the shoulder tonight which didn't look very good and he needed an injection," Redknapp explained.
"We'll have to see how he is tomorrow but he'll probably be a bit stiff so I don't know how long it will be before he is 100 per cent."
