  2. FULL TIME: Massive disappointment for the ten men of Spurs, but a valuable point for Aston Villa to help with their fight against relegation. Ciaran Clark's deflected effort opened the scoring for the home side before Danny Rose was sent off the field by referee Lee Probert for a horrible looking challenge on ex-Spurs player Alan Hutton. However, Spurs hit back with Emmanuel Adebayor scored from the spot after Richard Dunne brought down Sandro. Villa are three points ahead of the drop zone now and with their better goal difference, it looks like they're just about safe. Meanwhile, Spurs and Arsenal will battle it out for third spot next weekend. Harry Redknapp's men are at home to Fulham while Arsenal travel to West Brom.

    Alex McLeish is up on his feet as William Gallas is caught by Nathan Delfouneso for a free-kick on halfway.

  10. 90

  18. 82
