Villas-Boas bristled at criticism of his side's defending.
He snapped: "And our chances? Our chances at the back? They were brilliant at the back?
"Our chances against them, they don't count?"
"Look, if our opponents are in control from the first to the last minute and we win 5-2, I don't mind too much," he said. "We have won games with 10 men, and lost games with 10 men."
