AVB Defends Team Selection

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas defended his decision not to field a recognised striker in his side's shock defeat to Leeds United.

Spurs lost 2-1 at Leeds United in the FA Cup fourth round despite being heavy favourites to come out on top.

After the loss AVB's team selection came under fire as he opted not to play a recognised striker. However, he stated he had confidence in the players who were out on the field and insisted the side were motivated to win.

"We wanted to go through. We didn't make any aggressive changes," Villas-Boas said.

"We have confidence in the players we choose. We could have won the game."

When asked about his shortage in the striker department the former Chelsea and Porto boss added: "We are happy with the options we have. We understand an injury could put us in a difficult position. But it wasn't because we missed a lot of attacking opportunities that we lost [to Leeds]. We could not create many clear-cut chances."
