Andre Villas-Boas admits his team put on their worst performance of the season as Tottenham slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat to strugglers Wigan at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham went into the game having won five of their previous six Barclays Premier League matches, but they struggled throughout the clash. Wigan goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi was a spectator for much of the encounter in north London, and Villas-Boas' men were very fortunate that Ben Watson's strike was the only goal they conceded.

The performance, which drew an outcry of anger from the home fans - who also disagreed with Villas-Boas' decision to substitute Jermain Defoe - was way below what the Portuguese expects. "It was maybe our worst performance of the season," said Villas-Boas, who saw his team booed off against Norwich and West Brom earlier in the campaign.
