Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is impressed with the way his Spurs counterpart Andre Villas-Boas has maintained Tottenham’s fortunes after the departure of Harry Redknapp.

The north Londoners secured a rare away win over Manchester United last weekend and the Villans boss knows his side face a tough test at White Hart Lane.

He said: “Tottenham had a strong squad when Harry had them and Andre has taken them on.

“There’s not many teams who go to Old Trafford and win that’s for sure. It was a massive result for them.

“After Harry Redknapp left it was a massive job for someone given his record.

“But Andre is not a novice. He’s won the Europa League with Porto and some big trophies so I’m pretty sure he could have handled it.”
