Villas-Boas ready for United test

29 November 2013 09:41

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to turn his attentions to Manchester United after a morale-boosting UEFA Europa League win.

The Portuguese has come under pressure of late after Tottenham's slump in form, which culminated in a disastrous 6-0 Premier League loss to Manchester City last weekend.

However, Tottenham responded in fine style from their European excursion to Norway on Thursday, beating Tromso 2-0 on their way to topping Group K.

An own goal from Tromso defender Adnan Causevic along with a second for Mousa Dembele gave the Londoners the win.

Tottenham will host United when they return to domestic action on Sunday, having slipped to ninth in the table after back-to-back league defeats against Newcastle United and City either side of the international break.

And Villas-Boas admits that it was important to get back to winning ways quickly ahead of that clash.

"Obviously the opponent we have on Sunday is the biggest that we can have," he said.

"But to prepare for that game, it was important to get back to winning ways here, and we did it in a fashion where we looked solid and created lots of chances.

"I am extremely happy with the performance and result."
