Tottenham's AVB expecting 'tightest Premier League in years'

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas believes this season could be the closest Premier League campaign in years.

Spurs, who currently sit second behind Arsenal, take on fourth-placed Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Saturday and the Portuguese is gunning for a victory so the north London club can give themselves every chance of recording points in the early stages of the season.

"At the moment we are on a good run, but there are no clubs on maximum points and this year will be very tight at the top," he said.

"[Manchester] United are struggling for points, but they have played all the top team at the beginning of the season.

"This will probably become the tightest Premier League in years. It's important for everybody [to win this game]. It would be extremely good to build on our positive start, especially against a good team."
