Tottenham fans vented their anger at Andre Villas-Boas as their side slumped to a shock defeat against strugglers Wigan at White Hart Lane.

Spurs had come in to today's game having won five of their last six Barclays Premier League matches, but they were desperately poor this afternoon.

The Londoners were lucky that Ben Watson's strike was the only one they conceded after they put in a dire display that caused an outcry of fury among the home support.

The home fans knew that with games against Manchester City and Arsenal coming up, this was a perfect opportunity to register three more valuable points after last weekend's morale-boosting win over Southampton.

It was not surprising, therefore, that they vented their anger at their team by booing them off at half-time and at the final whistle.

The home support also turned against Villas-Boas 10 minutes into the second half when he substituted Jermain Defoe for Emmanuel Adebayor.

Loud boos rang out at White Hart Lane and the home fans chanted the name of the England striker, who sauntered off the pitch before going down the tunnel.

The Latics had gone six Premier League games without a victory before their 2-1 win against the Hammers last weekend, but they performed superbly today.

While Tottenham struggled with the basics, Roberto Martinez's men passed with finesse and purpose while Arouna Kone was a constant menace for the away side.
