Tottenham vs Aston Villa | Tottenham unexpectedly looses to Aston Villa at home

With a rocket after just eight minutes, Steven Bergwijn gave their ecstatic fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the start they had been waiting for. Their optimism quickly turned to despair, and by halftime, they were booing the players when Dean Smith’s Villa came back from behind to take the lead.

Sergio Reguilon’s nightmare own goal allowed the visitors a way back into the game as he sliced his clearance past Hugo Lloris, and six minutes before half-time, the Spurs full-clearance back’s was closed off, with Ollie Watkins the beneficiary, completing the reversal with a tidy finish.

Want to getaway? Spurs forward Harry Kane, who was making his 400th appearance for the club, was mostly left to fend for himself. And the nearest he got to scoring on the historic occasion was an angled attempt. It pushed Emiliano Martinez into a routine save after the restart.

Spurs piled pressure on Villa’s defense as their desperation rose in the closing stages. But Villa – who had Jack Grealish back in their starting XI – kept on to win impressively.

With Tottenham’s defeat, West Ham will step into sixth place with a point against West Bromwich Albion later in the day. While Everton will draw level on points with Spurs following their win over Wolves. The fight for the top six is heating up. And the winner will be determined on what is shaping up to be a dramatic final day.

Villa is only in 11th place. But will move into the top half of the table with a win on Sunday.

Tottenham – Aston Villa 1-2 (1-2)

Goals: Bergwijn (8), Reguilon (20og), Watkins (39)
