The first half was slow for both sides, Tottenham controlled the first 15 minutes having a lot of possession and making life really difficult for Aston Villa as they looked to play out, Aston villa were playing a formation that looked unfamiliar and this was shown among the players on the pitch.

Many balls were going long for Aston Villa targeting Ollie Watkins who was unlucky throughout the game and didn’t really get supported by his front line. After the initial 15 minutes Villa grew into the game and were able to create a few opportunities including some which were unlucky not to find the back of the net.

Villa came into this game on fine form so looked a tough outfit to beat winning their last 3 games in the Premier League however a game midweek away against Ajax may of been a key reason to why some of the villa players looked very tired.

4 minutes into the Second half Mickey Van De Ven went down injured which meant the introduction of Spurs summer signing Radu Dragusin, A worry for spurs fans as they wait to hear the final verdict on Van De Ven.

A minute later a good ball down the wing from Dejan Kulusevski allowed Pape Sarr to make up some ground on the right hand side, he put an inch perfect cross in from a difficult angle which found James Maddison who was able to tap it in for the first goal of the game.

3 minutes later Ezri Konsa with a lazy ball into danger put VIlla in a very awkward position at the back. Kulusevksi pounced on the loose ball and played the ball into Heung-min Son who was able to find Brennan Johnson who slotted the ball into the right hand side of the net with a composed finish.

In the 65th minute of the game John McGinn was sent off for a reckless challenge on Destiny Udogie, The tackle looked very dangerous and seemed as if it was out of anger more than anything. Chris Kavanagh had no hesitation in showing the Red card.

The red card certaintly didn’t help Villa as spurs were able to control the rest the game with very good game management and were able to bring a few players on in order to rest some players. Timo Werner, Rodrigo Bentancur and Pieree-Emile Hojbjerg came on and were able to help spurs over the line.

in the 91st minute of the game Son got his long awaited goal, after looking frustrated plenty of times in attacking areas Kulusevski was able to find Son with a good pull back from the right hand side allowing Son to score a great goal in a match where he definitely deserved it. Minutes later and Werner was able to get in on the Goals, Son with a nice cross straight into the path of Werner who was able to comfortably slot it past Emi Martinez in goal.

A very disappointing result for Aston Villa, but a ruthless victory from spurs who looked the better team throughout and a much needed victory as Tottenham look towards the Champions League spots. Tottenham now turn their attention to a London Derby away at Fulham who will be looking for a reaction after a 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Aston Villa take on West Ham in their next Premier League game and will be looking to bounce back with 3 points at the London stadium.
