Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas admitted that he was disappointed in the aftermath of Saturday’s 4-2 defeat at home to Chelsea but insisted that he was looking ahead to the 30 games left in the campaign.
Tottenham pulled to a 2-1 lead in the second half but couldn’t hold on as a Juan Mata double and an injury time effort from Daniel Sturridge sealed our first home defeat of the season.
“Everyone is disappointed because we wanted to go nearer to the top and this was a good chance to bring them down, but we have 30 more games ahead of us and we have to be focused and ready for them,” AVB said on the club’s official website.
“We have to bounce back from adversity and improve our results again.”
AVB was however pleased that we breached the defences of a side that don’t concede too many.
“They don’t concede lots of goals and we created lots of chances throughout the game. In the first half, when the game wasn’t as clean in terms of possession, we still had lots of chances to score,” he added.
“We’re all disappointed with the result, but we’ll keep going and this will give the players the incentive to go to one more level.”
Spurs travel to Maribor in the week before a return to league action with a visit to Southampton on Sunday.
