Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere carved open Tottenham’s back four with ease yesterday and Villas-Boas admits his team must improve defensively.

“We are a good attacking side but we have been conceding a couple of goals,” Villas-Boas said.

“We understand that we have to do better.

“But we suffered three in the first half, we suffered two in the second half, with one player less.

“There was attacking volume for both sides.

“Arsenal were efficient in their chances and we weren’t as efficient in ours.”
