Game Report

Highlights

Harry Kane was the hero for Tottenham after his two late goals gave them the win. Premier league new boys Aston Villa had threatened to cause an upset leading for a long time but eventually their resistance was broken.

Detail

Spurs started brightly twice coming close through Moura but on 9 minutes found themselves behind. John McGinn showed great composure to beat Lloris after a long ball over the top from Mings.

Spurs were knocked back on their heels and Villa twice had chances through Trezeguet to extend their lead. A kane header over the bar just before the break was as close as Spurs came to a response.

As expected Spurs upped the tempo after the break as Villa retreated. The introduction of Christian Eriksen was the catalyst as they began to carve out openings. Sissoko, Kane and Lamela all coming close.

The equaliser came from an unlikely source, new signing Ndombele bending in a beauty from the edge of the box as Villa grew tired.

Villa were desperately trying to hold on for the point but were eventually undone, Lamela won the ball off Grealish and with a stroke of luck his shot deflected into the path of Kane who slotted home.

Kane wrapped up the points in injury time with his second, a controlled shot into the corner after nice work from Sissoko.

Summary

Tottenham will be relieved to have won the match after being pushed all the way by Aston Villa, they greatly improved in the second-half and had too much quality in the end. Villa can be proud of their battling performance but unfortunately ran out of steam in the last quarter under immense pressure.
