Tottenham made it four points on the road from two matches within four days as they beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at The Hawthorns today.
"It has been a very important week for us," said Villas-Boas.
"To get four points away from home, with not much time between the games, is excellent.
"We have put ourselves in a very good position to threaten for third place.
"I am extremely happy apart from the big setback to Jermain Defoe."
