Villas-Boas thrilled with draw

21 January 2013 01:03

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was thrilled with his side's performance in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

The Red Devils went ahead thanks to a 25th-minute header from Robin Van Persie but Spurs were able to snatch a point thanks to a last-gasp Clint Dempsey goal.

Despite only managing to score in the final minute of the match, Villas-Boas insisted Tottenham were unlucky not to take more out the game as they continue to strive for a Champions League berth.

"I think we were the best team, we created the most chances," Villas-Boas said after the match at White Hart Lane.

"I think it is probably the worst game United have had in terms of chances created and in terms of opportunities with only four.

"I think it is credit to what the team has been doing and it's a pity we couldn't win but I am extremely happy with the draw obviously.

While pleased with the result, Villas-Boas said it was important to back up the performance with positive results in their upcoming fixtures.

"It is important (the point) but there are so many games still ahead of us," he said.

"This point only counts if we are able to do well in the next games against Norwich and West Brom, we need to continue our run of form. We really wanted to win, it gives you great pleasure and confidence when you win against big teams.

"I think we played great football defensively and offensively, I think we played really well. We played better than our opponent and I think it is credit to the boys the way they have embraced this season and how much they want to get this Champions League qualification.

"Hopefully we can remain competent in the rest of the games to reach our objective."
