Spurs have moved up to third in the standings after winning four games and scoring 11 goals during December, including a 3-0 win at Fulham and a 4-0 success at Aston Villa.

"It's been an excellent December for us and we've managed to put ourselves in the kind of position that we want to be," said Villas-Boas.

"We sit third in the league, but it is where we finish at the end of the season that matters."

Robin van Persie took the player honours as he continued his impressive form for the Premier League pace-setters Manchester United.

The Dutchman found the net five times as United won five of their six Premier League games during the month.

Van Persie told Sky Sports News: "I do feel we are getting stronger every time we play and we are getting better.

"We are only seven points ahead and we have to play everyone one more time, nothing is decided. It will be tough this weekend against Liverpool. It is a massive game for lots of people.

"But in the end it's about the three points. We have to look at it game by game."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
