Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has praised West Ham United for their impact this season.

Sam Allardyce's men have lost just three times this season and currently reside in seventh place - something that has impressed Villas-Boas.

"You have to congratulate them when it's due, they have been extremely good this season," the Portuguese said.

"It makes them more comfortable in terms of their objective which is to stay in the Premier League. So now they are on track and maybe they can raise their objectives."
