It was indeed a mixed week for Spurs and while some supporters remain unconvinced by yesterday’s 1-0 win against 10-man West Brom, three points is three points. And with Everton slipping up at home to Aston Villa, our lead in fourth place has been extended.
After the game, head coach Andre Villas-Boas declared that he was just happy to get those three points on the board.
“It was an important week for us with Norwich and West Brom away, extremely difficult matches,” AVB said on the club’s official website.
“We managed to get four points from those fixtures, get back to winning ways at West Brom and our team hasn’t lost since December in the Premier League.”
The win also saw us close the gap on Chelsea in third, after the Blues slumped to a 3-2 loss away to Newcastle.
“We also benefit from the weekend’s results and it’s put us in position to close in on third place and also release some of the pressure from behind us as well,” Andre added.
The one downside to the weekend was Arsenal’s win over Stoke but next up for Spurs is our home game with Newcastle, in Saturday’s televised early kick off, while Arsenal travel to Sunderland and Everton take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.
