Spurs recorded their third straight home Premiership win over Swansea and as per last season, it came with the narrowest of 1-0 scorelines. The outcome also mirrored that of last weekend with Roberto Soldado’s second half penalty sealing the points but once again our dominance of the match meant that victory was no more than we deserved.
After the game, head coach Andre Villas-Boas said that there were positive signs for the season ahead.
“At the moment, these are excellent signs, signs of a team that is mature and knows what to do to gain the right result,” said AVB on the club’s official website.
“You never know what can happen in the future but at the moment we’re showing a winning mentality and that’s helping us to get results. It’s a good start.
Andre also asserted that the three points was thoroughly deserved.
“We deserved to win, created lots of chances, were sound defensively and that’s why we had so much of the ball against a team that normally dominates other teams.
“Our shape was tremendous, Capoue protecting and Paulinho’s workrate was immense. I’m really happy with the performance.”
Once again, a win’s a win but you feel that Spurs will need to convert more of those chances if they are to take a positive result away from the Emirates next Sunday.
