Gracia, as quoted by the Watford Observer, was expectedly beaming with pride after the game, saying: "
"It’s a good moment for us and we try to enjoy it knowing it’s only the beginning, four games. When we spoke last week and you ask me about we have won all the games, but not so important as Tottenham. All the teams are important for me and we prepare the same way for all the games.

“To win against Tottenham is very important for us because everybody knows they are a very, very good team and today it has been a very hard-working game.
“The mobility of Dele Alli, Lucas (Moura) and (Christian) Eriksen, they create a lot of chances inside and they had to defend. I think all of the players have played amazingly and I’m proud of them.
"In the second half we have conceded, but we had a very good reaction to be able to score from two set pieces. We have been confident until the end and with our fans, we got it (the win).”
Gracia's men will now enjoy a two week break from Premier League action as international football takes over, before returning to take on Man Utd at Vicarage Road on September 15.
