Match Commentary

- Thanks for joining us and stick with ESPN FC for the report and post-match reaction.
- The result was a fair reflection on a match Spurs just edged, and Villas-Boas will be extremely pleased to see that notable missed chances - Adebayor spurned two and Defoe one - did not cost his side.
- Tottenham get the three points thanks to a quick turnaround at the start of the second half.
