Chelsea picked up their first win since Boxing Day.
The Blues were struggling for wins in the Premier League which almost shut down their top-four chances.
But a 2-0 win over Tottenham has renewed confidence in Chelsea who’s last league win was against Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
“The attitude, mentality and spirit of the team was very good on Saturday in training, you felt that they wanted to prove a point,” said Tuchel.
“I continued to have a good feeling before the match. I saw them and how they were together and prepared the match and I am happy they could prove it.
“Of course Hakim’s goal gave us a massive lift, but I am even more impressed because we didn’t score that goal after five, six or seven minutes or the early stages of the match, but went from there with pure, positive emotions.
“Now we go into a break and it was important to go into this break with a victory. There’s no doubt about it because if you don’t have the results and the performances you want, there’s no substitution for a win and that feeling.
“You cannot produce it artificially so we needed this but we needed also to do things better and keep on believing. The guys are very tired now because it was a long run but it was important for us.”
