Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho was delighted with their comfortable 3-0 defeat of Europa League opponents LASK.

Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son struck for Spurs, with Gareth Bale also forcing an own goal.

Mourinho said afterwards, "I'm happy for the squad. We changed lot of players...others have worked so hard. Normally I wouldn't do it in the first match in the phase when we're playing at home but I trust the boys and it was good.

"The performance was solid and safe. We could have scored more goals but it's not a knockout game. Just three points. If we had supporters in the stadium it would have been more. They bring an extra bit of energy.

"In the end it was an opportunity for players to play and get confidence.

"I feel for the subs - everybody wants to play.

"Last season we had lots of problems without a strike force and without winger and attackers in some parts of the season. I look at my side now and I have so many options."
