Martin Keown: Premier League bootroom and AVB fast-forwards to revamped Spurs



I have a say

Andre Villas-Boas's Tottenham really impressed me against Reading last Sunday - there is so much pace in the team.

With Jermain Defoe, Gareth Bale, Kyle Walker, Aaron Lennon and Mousa Dembele going forward, they look turbo-charged.

Dembele particularly caught my eye. I hadn't realised just how powerful he is - he glides past players as if they are not there.

He played in between deep-lying Sandro and the more advanced Gylfi Sigurdsson, meaning there was a nice balance to the midfield. The Belgian is so athletic that he can be the extra man going forward and the extra man helping the defence. The system worked well and don't forget Scott Parker is yet to return. He can fit into the role Sandro plays, so the Brazilian will have to keep up his high level of performance.

Sigurdsson is very intelligent with his passing and has great vision - he threaded a lovely ball for Lennon to set up Defoe for Spurs' opener at the Madejski Stadium.

Those new signings have started well, while Lennon looks as good as a new  signing with his form.
