Andre Villas-Boas explained that it was not an easy win over Swansea in the Barclays Premiership on Sunday, but one they fully deserved.
Spurs made it two wins from two matches in the 2013/14 league season and despite only picking up the wins thanks to a penalty in each of their opening games from Roberto Soldado, Villas-Boas admits he is not concerned over his side’s inability to score from open play.
“It was difficult. I think defensively we did very well,” said Villas-Boas after the match.
“You often see Swansea taking control of possession, but today they didn't, so I think we were defensively sound.
“It was a tight encounter, but I think in the end it was a deserved result.”
Villas-Boas is not worried about his side’s lack of goals form open play, but admits he is happy his side is getting into danger areas more often.
“I don't think there's any frustration. Last season we had no penalties, but this season we're going in to the box more and creating better chances,” added the coach.
Villas-Boas also touched on the Gareth Bale situation, with the Welsh star allegedly nearing a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
“We've gone on with our business. Gareth, unfortunately for us, hasn't been part of our squad, but we have a big squad to choose from,” explained Villas-Boas.
“This team can only develop and we look forward towards the future.
“With Gareth or without, we can be stronger.”
