Villas-Boas unconcerned by lack of Tottenham goals
Andre Villas-Boas has downplayed concerns over Tottenham Hotspur’s goal scoring prowess after the goalless Premier League draw with Everton, Sky Sports has reported.
Spurs have only nine goals to show for their first 10 league games of the season and passed up the chance to go second in the table when they were unable to beat the Toffees. Everton could also have gone second with a win at Goodison Park and, by contrast, have 14 goals from their opening 10 games under Roberto Martinez.
Villas-Boas however rejected the suggestion that Tottenham were lacking firepower, pointing to their combined record from other competitions as proof. All told, Tottenham have scored 30 goals in 17 games, and Villas-Boas added: “ he chances are coming and sometimes they go your way and the opponent is not there to stop it.
“The team is creating more chances and more shots. I carry on about all the good statistics and others about all the negative, and there will be debate.
“At the moment it is results that have put us in fourth and into one of the spots in the Champions League. You can have more goals, less goals. We all want excitement but right now the team is doing extremely well.”
The highest scorers in the Premier League thus far are Manchester City, who hit seven past Norwich City on Saturday to take their tally to 28. The Canaries are the joint-lowest with six, level with bottom club Sunderland.
