The former Tottenham winger shared his delight on social media.
Indeed, the former Tottenham winger felt the victory that sent the north London side into the last 16 was a 'great result.'
Without first-choice centre-forward Harry Kane, Tottenham still managed three goals - which were down to the trio's movement and work rate, according to Anderton.
Great result for Spurs tonight. Without a centre forward, great movement and work rate from the front 3.. Bring on Sunday !!— Darren Anderton (@DarrenAnderton) February 26, 2016
Spurs will be heavy favourites against Swansea City on Sunday afternoon but they would also have been against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup last week.
Tottenham's strong performance on Thursday night will have sent a message to those across Europe. But it's now back to sending a message to those in the Premier League.
Palace dented confidence with their win at White Hart Lane last week so it will be as important as ever for Mauricio Pochettino's men to be at their best this time around.
