Tottenham managed to get into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup in style by beating Aston Villa 4-0 in the third round of the competition. Tottenham were going into the match with one eye on the weekend’s match against Chelsea. This was a much bigger match for Andre Villas-Boas and his men, but due to the incredible squad strength, they were able to secure a victory over Villa. Despite resting a number of players for this match, Villas-Boas was able to field internationals like Jermain Defoe on the field. Brazilian international Paulinho was also used as well.
Defoe has found game time limited in the season and he has so far participated only in the cup competitions. However, he did his best to stake a claim in the first-team by scoring two goals against a Villa team that had won during the weekend against Norwich. After the match, Villas-Boas praised his team by saying that they showed incredible quality to get past a very good Villa team. Now they will be waiting for the draw of the fourth round. Tottenham won this competition a few years ago, and they will be hoping to lift it this time around with Villas-Boas.
Villas-Boas recalled that he started with three players who played against Cardiff during the weekend.
“It was a great performance and a great response from the team. We came here with three players who played that game (against Cardiff on Sunday), so it was a risk, but we have great strength in depth. We have great team spirit this year and all the players are buzzing for opportunities like this so I think most of them really, really performed out there. We have that strength in depth to be playing after just two days, so we use it,” said Villas-Boas.

It seems that Villas-Boas is more determined to bring in a striker before the end of the transfer window, as he recently revealed that the club trying to bring Valencia hitman Roberto Soldado. He will cost in the region of £ 25 million, which is his release clause in the contract.
Tottenham are looking to finish in the top four for the second time in four years.
“We will continue to do our transfer business and we have not stopped yet, for sure. Chadli’s a player we’ve been following for quite some time and we managed to strike a deal in the last few days. He’s a player who is extremely versatile and can play in several positions up front. He played with tremendous success on the left for Twente as a winger and as an attacker for Belgium,” said the Tottenham manager, who stressed again that he wants to keep Gareth Bale.
