Younes Kaboul was delighted to be back in the Tottenham side against Everton following a month out through injury.
Kaboul impressed on his return from a hamstring injury in the 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw, despite conceding the free-kick which led to Leighton Baines' opening goal.
"I was very happy to start the game, even though it was a bit difficult because I hadn't played for a month," Kaboul said on Spurs' official website.
"I thought we did well defensively but we couldn't win. I thought 1-1 was a fair scoreline and now we have to concentrate and focus on the next game."
Kaboul was grateful to team-mates Rafael van der Vaart for cancelling out Baines' strike inside three minutes.
He added: "They scored a great goal and we're lucky because we came back straight afterwards. That was important."
