Match Report - Aston Villa

Heung-Min Son scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner as Tottenham put significant pressure on Chelsea in the top-four race with a 3-2 win at Aston Villa.

The relegation-threatened hosts bossed the early stages and took a deserving lead when Toby Alderweireld scored an own goal

The Belgian defender redeemed himself before the break when lashing home a difficult chance (27) before Spurs took advantage of a VAR call when being awarded a penalty when Bjorn Engels challenged Steven Bergwijn.

Pepe Reina saved Heung-Min Son's spot-kick but the South Korean was quickest to the rebound and made it 2-1 (45+2).

It looked a big ask for Villa to respond with Spurs playing cleverly on the counter-attack but Engels headed his team level (53) after a brilliant Jack Grealish corner. Both teams had chances to win it and Reina made some important stops for Villa before a horrendous Engels error presented Son with one last chance, which he took (90+3).
