West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has scoffed at the moaning of Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Allardyce takes West Ham to Tottenham for a Capital One Cup quarter-final, having won 3-0 there turf last month.

He said: "Whatever he might say, they do the same when they go away in Europe. He can't really criticise the team that comes to them and sits behind the ball as they do the same. "We all set out tactically to nullify the opposition."
