Manager Andre Villas-Boas has reversed Harry Redknapp's ban on Christmas parties at Tottenham, insisting he is happy for the squad to have "two or three" this winter.

Redknapp prevented his players from having a party three years ago after his team lost to Wolves just four days after Robbie Keane had organised a secret and raucous trip to Dublin.

Redknapp's new team QPR will also not have a Christmas party this month, but Villas-Boas is more relaxed.

"We will try to have two or three (parties)," Villas-Boas said. "It's normal. It's part of our group spirit."

Spurs will be hoping to celebrate progression to the Europa League last-16 tonight, which they will secure if they avoid defeat to Panathinaikos.
