The English champions are currently eighth in the Premier League table after taking 14 points from nine games, but Villas-Boas believes that he was under more scrutiny following his sacking from Chelsea.
According to The Telegraph, Villas-Boas was asked in today's press conference if there had been too much "drama" over United's start to the season, to which he responded: "Drama enough? I don't think so.
"For the champions of England to sit in their position I don't think there has been a lot of drama, to be fair. I was involved in another club before and there was much more drama surrounding my results than Man United's results."
Spurs are currently fourth in the standings.
