Andre Villas-Boas hailed his Tottenham history makers at Old Trafford on Saturday night - but ruled out a tilt at the ultimate prize.

Clint Dempsey's second-half goal ultimately proved to be the matchwinner as Tottenham emerged from a second-half pummeling to secure a 3-2 victory at Manchester United, who have now fallen four points behind league leaders Chelsea.

It was the first time Spurs had won at United since 1989 and Villas-Boas said: "We wrote history for our team. The players really felt they could nick a win here and the overall performance was an expression of that desire and ambition, though in different ways. In the first half, we attacked and kept the ball. In the second, we defended."
