Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Micky Hazard is impressed with manager Andre Villas-Boas's style at White Hart Lane so far.

The Portuguese has gained the confidence of the fans after a disappointing start to the season, and masterminded Spurs' 3-2 win at Manchester United on Saturday.

"AVB has taken a lot of flak and the press seem to have had a witch hunt against him, so I'm delighted for him [to get a win at Manchester United]," Hazard told talkSPORT. "I love his passion. When we score a goal he's like a fan – and fans loves to see that.

"He's been under a lot of pressure, there's no doubt about that, and the knives were out, but he stood firm, made some fantastic signings in the window and we look a good side now.

"The players have bought into it, adopted the way he wants to play. And when we have to dig deep and battle, we can do it."

Spurs' win at Old Trafford has lifted them to fifth in the Premier League table with 11 points from six matches, five points behind leaders Chelsea.
