Tottenham boss AVB: Dzeko just like Chicharito

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas says Manchester City matchwinner Edin Dzeko is their answer to Manchester United's Javier Hernandez.

Both players came off the bench on the weekend to swing the game in their teams' favour.

AVB was on the wrong end of Dzeko's heroics and declared: "If there is a comparable situation to this one, it is Javier Hernandez (on Saturday).

"In the last three games he has scored six times. He has come on and made a difference. Dzeko made the difference with the ambition to show he deserves to be in the final XI.

"It was an individual moment of brilliance, which is recurrent for a player who continues to be on the bench but continues to come on to destroy the opposition."
