"It is the first time I have seen something like that happen," says the Villa manager Paul LambertVertonghen looks quite bashful about the whole situation, but at least he isn't caught with his shorts down. "Probably we got away with it," says Tottenham manager Andre Villas-BoasHelenius remonstrates to referee Jon Moss, but the official appears to suggest he played the advantage. Lambert adds: "You hope you get those decisions. I don't think anybody could believe [play] wasn't pulled back."Spurs go on to score shortly after the incident through Paulinho, before late goals from Nacer Chadli and Jermain Defoe, with a second, secure Villas-Boas's side's place in the fourth round of the cup.
