  • SPURS LEAD! Having been gifted the ball on the halfway line, Spurs run directly at the static visiting back three, and Son lays the ball on for Hojbjerg to calmly slot into the bottom-right corner of the net. An excellent finish, which makes it Spurs 1-0 Villa!

  • VILLA ARE LEVEL! Watkins demonstrates his renowned predatory instincts, as he slides in ahead of Lloris to connect with a low Targett cross from the left and prod the ball into the net. Ings was instrumental in the build-up. The Villans are back on equal terms at 1-1!

  • SPURS GO BACK IN FRONT! Lucas makes a late run ahead of Targett at the back post and has an empty net to tap into from just yards out, following a fine Son run and cross. As the ball struck Villa's luckless left-back, though, it has been awarded as an own goal. Villa weren't level for long: Spurs lead 2-1!
