McLeish blames 'circus' defending

Manager Alex McLeish describes Aston Villa's defending as a "circus" as a first-half double from Emmanuel Adebayor eases Tottenham to a 2-0 Premier League win at White Heart Lane.

After Villa failed to clear a corner, the Togolese forward profited from Gareth Bale's delivery to score his first with an overhead kick before making it 2-0, bundling in after a left-sided cross from Bale.

The defeat leaves Villa - still looking for their first away win of the season - in eighth place ahead of games against Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea before the end of the year.
