Villas-Boas' Tottenham just five points ahead of AVB's Chelsea

Andre Villas-Boas has been in charge of 27 Premier League matches for Tottenham, the same number he had overseen when sacked by Chelsea last season.

At Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese tactician recorded 13 wins, seven draws and seven losses and the club was situated fifth on the table at the time of his demise.

At the same point this season, Spurs sit third - ahead of Chelsea - after winning 15, drawing six and losing six.

Both teams scored 47 goals and conceded 32 but Tottenham's points total of 51 outweighs Chelsea's 46 which led to Roman Abramovich ending the Southwest London clubs partnership with Villas-Boas.

It appears he is much more loved in North London and with second-placed Manchester City now in their sights, Tottenham could be set for Champions League action under the former FC Porto boss.

It's amazing what 12 months in football can do even if it is only a slight improvement in results suggesting it all depends on the culture of the club in question.
