Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe hit a double in their 3-0 win at Fulham.

Villas-Boas, whose side are now in fourth position, was left in awe of the in-form striker's exploits.

"It was amazing," the Portuguese said.

"Sometimes strikers look distant from the game but when the team sets them up it's important that they have that clinical touch and he just has it.

"He is having an amazing season with us. He is playing lots of games and is extremely motivated."
