Spurs' run of four straight league wins ended with a 0-0 draw at Loftus Road which was short on significant goalmouth action and marked their first domestic failure to score on the road under Villas-Boas' management.

When the visitors did threaten, in good spells at the start of both halves, goalkeeper Cesar was equal to their best efforts.

Villas-Boas told Sky Sports: "We're a bit disappointed, but we'll take a point away from home and I think it's the first time we haven't scored for quite some time.

"The boys did well. We came out strong at the beginning and strong in the second half, we just couldn't keep the momentum.

"Maybe we didn't create as much as normal but we still take the point against a team that's just won away from home (at Chelsea) and is full of confidence.

"Julio made some great, great saves, and in the end they are decisive because if you score one it unlocks QPR.

"They're well organised, they defend well and can hit you on the counter, so to get that first goal was important for us. It's a pity we couldn't take those chances."

Tottenham lost Sandro to a first-half injury, but Villas-Boas said: "He should be okay for the Manchester United game next week. It's just a knock on the knee."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
