Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas insists he didn't need a new striker signing last month.

Jermain Defoe has shrugged off a knock and is Spurs' only available striker at West Brom tomorrow.

But AVB insisted: "We're stronger than Arsenal and Chelsea up front. We have scored goals from many different players this season.

"It is part of our team's characteristics but Defoe is the leading guy, he has been lethal so far.

"We are happy with our strikers' efficiency at the moment and also with what the other players do for the team."
