Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was full of pride after victory at Manchester United.

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.

It was the first time Spurs had won at United since 1989 and Villas-Boas said: "We wrote history for our team. The satisfaction comes from that.

"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."
