Villas-Boas: One more win for comeback

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas believes he will have silenced his doubters if his side can secure a victory in Saturday's Premier League game at Sunderland.

Lewis Holtby was Tottenham's match-winner at Craven Cottage.
Lewis Holtby celebrates as Tottenham steady the ship against Fulham.

Villas-Boas came under fire after his side suffered a thumping 6-0 defeat at Manchester City last month, with some reports suggesting he was in danger of losing his job at White Hart Lane.

Yet after Europa League win against Tromso was backed up by a positive 2-2 draw against Manchester United last Sunday, Villas-Boas claimed the come-from-behind 2-1 win at Fulham was evidence that his side are moving in the right direction.

"At the moment it's going well for us, we managed to get two good wins and a good draw against Man United," stated Villas-Boas. "To complete the bounce-back, if we can say that, it would be great to win at Sunderland.

"To do that after a midweek Premier League fixture and after a good draw against Man Utd, that would show we really are alive.

"Some surprising results [on Wednesday] help us come up a couple of places up the league table and now a couple of wins could bring us back into the frame for the top four."

Tottenham made the most of their opportunities at Craven Cottage, with Villas-Boas suggesting that clinical touch in front of goal now needs to become the norm for his team.

"We have to do it more often now, when teams drop back, to have a go  from outside the box. We had lots of shots against a side like Newcastle but couldn't break them," he added. "This time we were fortunate that they ended up in the back of the net.

"It was very important for us. Us and Fulham were looking to put our challenges back on track and we couldn't wait any longer; it had to happen today and we did it in the most difficult way.

"It was two great goals. After Fulham scored they were crowding the spaces in front of goal and it was difficult to break them down. We scored two cracking goals and hopefully now December and January can be the months we put ourselves back on track."

Villas-Boas went on to heap praise on his French keeper Hugo Lloris after his sparkling display against Fulham paved the way for the late Spurs revival.

"That was fantastic for Hugo. He needed a game like that for his confidence. It was a boost which can help him going forward," added the Tottenham manager.

"We bought him last year with the view to strengthening that position. He's a top goalkeeper. He has great ambitions for the club and himself."
