The Portuguese boss was full of praise for his striker after the match.
"It is some achievement," Villas-Boas told reporters. "If we continue like this, there is a big chance he will break the record.
"It will be another great achievement for him. I am sure he will achieve it.
"Let's not celebrate before it happens, but it will be a great record for him and the club. It was another great performance by Jermain."
Spurs' next game is against Hull City on Sunday.
