AVB: Spurs Should Be 'Ashamed' of Man City Thrashing

Andre Villas-Boas said Tottenham should feel “ashamed” after losing 6-0 against Manchester City on Sunday. Spurs went into the clash at the Etihad with the best defensive in the Premier League, but its game plan was blown wide open just 13 seconds into the game, when Jesus Navas put the home team in front, floating home the rebound from Sergio Aguero’s shot. It all went downhill from there, as both Navas and Aguero went on to score twice in the game, while Alvaro Negredo and a Sandro own goal rounded out the scoring.

"To lose 6-0 is extremely embarrassing," said Villas-Boas. "We have high expectations for the season and losing to a rival by that scoreline is always difficult. ... It is a bad moment. We have to be ashamed of the result."

Tottenham has now failed to score in its last three EPL games. Only Crystal Palace and Sunderland -- the bottom two clubs in the league -- have scored fewer goals this season. "The team is capable of creating, it's not finishing which is the situation right now," AVB added.

Following the game, Sky Bet slashed the odds on the Portuguese being fired to 8/1, which makes him the second manager that is most likely to be let go after Fulham’s Martin Jol.
