Luke Varney gave Championship side Leeds a 15th-minute lead in the fourth-round tie and Ross McCormack made it 2-0 five minutes after the interval.

Spurs, who were without striker Jermain Defoe due to a slightly twisted hip, pulled a goal back on 58 minutes but were unable to find an equaliser.

"Leeds made the most of their opportunities," Villas-Boas said. "It was good to come back into the game but we maybe could have done a little better.

"Leeds were really up for it. We had some opportunities to go 2-2, but maybe not too clear-cut.

"Our second half was definitely better than the first, but we could have done better not to go 2-0 down.

"Unfortunately today we missed Defoe, who always gives us an option, through injury, but we'll have him back for the Norwich game."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
