Defoe was superb - Villas-Boas

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas describes Jermain Defoe as "superb" after the striker scored twice in their 4-0 League Cup win over Aston Villa.

The England striker set Spurs on their way by glancing home Lewis Holtby's clever pass before completing the victory with a late finish. Paulinho and Nacer Chadli were also on the scoresheet at Villa Park.

Villas-Boas believes Spurs can challenge for the League Cup and says all his players are "buzzing" to play in all competitions this season.
