Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is delighted with the drive within his squad.

Villas-Boas reckons losing at home to Wigan gave Tottenham the kick up the backside which has propelled them up to third in the table.

He said: "The Wigan defeat left us a bit down.

"Maybe that was something that made us jump back as after that we had a run of results. It was an important day for us.

"The team was willing to jump out of the situation. When players have belief in what you do, it makes it easier."
