Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas had no problem with their 0-0 draw against Stoke City.
"Stoke have one of the best defences in Europe and they are very well organised. They don't make it easy for anyone," Villas-Boas said.
"We gave them a run for their money and our players tried very hard.
"Sometimes you try everything and the ball doesn't go in the back of the net. We had a go and I'm very pleased with the players."
