Andre Villas-Boas has attributed Tottenham’s 3-0 win at Fulham down to the form of midfielder Sandro.

The Brazilian dynamo has been in fine form and scored the first of three goals in their latest away win at Fulham.

Villas-Boas told the Spurs website: "He's such a good player and it's difficult to single out individuals, but Sandro has been amazing for us.”

In form striker Jermain Defoe has also been impressed by the midfielders work rate in the middle of the pitch.

He said: "He does so much for the team, he works so hard. He's a real fighter."

Former Fulham man Clint Dempsey added: "Sandro had the confidence to take the shot, credit to him. That jump-started things, it opened the game up.

“Fulham had to push more men forward and we were able to find the gaps behind their midfield to release Jermain. It worked well for us."
