Spurs held at home to Lazio

Tottenham have drawn their opening Europa League fixture with Lazio 0-0.

The north London side had three efforts from Jermain Defoe, Clint Dempsey and Steven Caulker all ruled out, and in the end had to settle for a point against the Serie A outfit.

Andre Villas-Boas has stated that he has no qualms over his side’s display and feels that they did enough to win the game.

“I think we had enough football to get the win,” he told Sky Sports.

“I am extremely happy with the performance and effort the players put in and in the end you can’t reprimand them for nothing, they were outstanding today and they had enough opportunities to win the game.

“A team that puts the ball in the net three times, and see two goals that were clear is disappointing but it shows we are on the right track, but the team has been doing extremely well.”

It is believed that travelling fans may well have been guilty of racism chants and monkey noises, with Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend targeted; AVB feels that Uefa will be reviewing the incidents.

“I think (UEFA will act if the accusations are proven),” Villas-Boas continued.

“UEFA is very active on this kind of situation so and our overall objective is to kick racism out of football.

“I can’t point the finger at anyone in any way shape or form tonight because I didn’t hear anything. It’s for the authorities to follow up in any kind of investigation,” he concluded.

Spurs host London rivals QPR at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
