Juande Ramos admitted his surprise at the rate of Tottenham´s development following Tuesday night´s emphatic Carling Cup semi-final win at White Hart Lane.

Spurs ended their miserable run against their rivals in style, the 5-1 victory sending them to Wembley next month to face Chelsea or Everton.

"Yes, it´s been a big change," said Ramos. "But without the collaboration of the footballers themselves, this would have been impossible. The huge effort the players have made to come out of a bad situation means we have been improving."
