Andre Villas-Boas says that Tottenham Hotspur's win at Tromso IL means that they are prepared to take on Manchester United at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that his side are ready to take on Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend.

The Portuguese boss believes that his team's 2-0 away victory over Tromso IL in the Europa League on Thursday suggests that they have bounced back from their 6-0 defeat at Manchester City on Sunday.

"I am very happy for the players to have bounced back from the defeat against Man City," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying. "Obviously the opponent we have on Sunday is the biggest that we can have.

"But to prepare for that game, it was important to get back to winning ways tonight and we did it in a fashion where we looked solid and created lots of chances. I am extremely happy with the performance and result."

The win in Norway meant that Tottenham have emerged victorious in all of their five group stage matches in the Europa League so far this season.
