SummaryTottenham Hotspur F.C. have given the inexperienced Tim Sherwood the chance to stamp his mark on the ambitious London club by naming him on Monday as head coach until the end of next season with their sights on the top four.

by West Ham United, who again won at White Hart lane in the League Cup quarter-final last week.

The disappointing 2-1 Cup exit was Sherwood's first game as interim head coach but he engineered a 3-2 win at Southampton on Sunday to leave Tottenham Hotspur F.C. seventh in the standings, six points off leaders Liverpool and north London rivals Arsenal.

That result helped his claims to be given the top job on a permanent basis and Sherwood, a combative midfielder who played nearly 100 games for the club before joining Portsmouth, now has a chance to show what he can do in his first job as head coach.

Spurs scored three league goals for the first time this season at Southampton and Sherwood said: "I like to set teams up like that (to attack). There are no rules, there are different ways to win a football match. You have to do what you believe."

His former Tottenham Hotspur F.C. team mates, Les Ferdinand and Steffen Freund, plus Chris Ramsey, are in a new first-team set which should find favour with the club's demanding supporters who grew frustrated with the negative tactics adopted by Villas-Boas.
