Villas-Boas Credits Leeds For ‘Competitive Game’

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admitted that his side are ‘all disappointed’ after their 2-1 defeat to Leeds at Elland Road but did have praise for the opposition.

Goals from Luke Varney and Ross McCormack sent Leeds 2-0 up and Villas-Boas insists it was an uphill struggle from that point on.

 

"It was difficult always trying to chase the game," he said. "We had a good 15 minutes at the beginning when we could have perhaps done a little better with our opportunities.”

 

"We always had to chase the game at 1-0 and then 2-0 made it even more difficult.
The players did extremely well to come back into the game at 2-1, but we couldn’t create as many opportunities as we normally do.”

 

"That was down to Leeds and how they set up, they got into our faces and made it difficult for us, so credit for them for being so competitive.”

 

"We didn’t have a lot of space, maybe more in the first half and less in the second because they gained inspiration from going 2-0 up.”

 

"We're all disappointed but we move on to our next two fixtures away to Norwich and West Brom."
