AVB bullish despite derby rout

Published 2 Comments

Andre Villas-Boas insists Tottenham's season will not fall to pieces despite their humiliating north London derby defeat.

Tottenham's ambition of finishing above Arsenal was made to look like nothing but a pipe dream after they were routed 5-2 by their bitter rivals at the Emirates Stadium. Emmanuel Adebayor opened the scoring after 10 minutes but he then ruined his team's chances of securing an upset when he was sent off for a reckless sliding tackle on Santi Cazorla.

Arsenal romped to victory with goals from Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Cazorla and Theo Walcott. Yet Villas-Boas is adamant that his team will not be crushed by the defeat. He said: "When you are poor, it can do damage, but when you play like this I don't think it can."
