Villas-Boas upbeat despite defeat
- From the section Football
Andre Villas-Boas says that Tottenham's players should be "very proud" of themselves despite a 5-2 loss to arch-rivals Arsenal.
The Spurs manager admits the referee made the "right" decision in sending off Emmanuel Adebeyor after 18 minutes while his side were leading 1-0, a decision which dramatically shifted the momentum of the game in Arsenal's favour.
The seven-goal game means the fixture is now the highest-scoring in Premier League history, with 121 goals scored between the two North London sides.
