  1. FULL TIME. Tottenham 2 Aston Villa 0.

  2. 90

    N'Zogbia gives up the chase against Adebayor, whose cross is claimed well by Guzan. Two minutes injury time to be played.

  3. 89

    Bannan shows good endeavour to prevent a corner being conceded in a good challenge on Bale, but Spurs pick up possession instantly from Guzan's goal kick.

  4. 88

    Dembele goes for the spectacular with a curling left-footed strike from 30 yards. It's high and wide though much to Guzan's relief.

  5. 87

    Villa eventually find the run of Bent, but Spurs push them back with the visitors looking very lethargic now after a hard day's effort.

  6. 86

    Clark carelesly gives the ball away and Spurs break, with Bale dreadfully unlucky as he cannons a shot off the post - via an excellent Guzan stop - before Bannan clears.

  7. 85

    And that's the end of Lennon's man-of-the-match performance as he comes off for Townsend.

  8. 84

    Lowton is found by Benteke but the magnificent Lennon makes the tackle to prevent a cross coming in.

  9. 83

    Bannan heads away from Lennon's ball but 10-man Villa are really stretched as Spurs camp out in their half waiting to strike.

  10. 82

    Benteke looks for Bent, and if the ball had have come off it would have been terrific but it lands straight at the feet of Caulker.

  11. 81

    Second change of the game for Spurs as Dempsey comes off for Sigurdsson.

  12. 81

    Bannan has been shifted to left-back as Villa look to hold on for the final few minutes. Bale rifles a shot away from range as Spurs look for a third but he drags his effort wide.

  13. 80

    Adebayor takes aim but can only find the hands of Guzan with a looping shot from 20 yards.

  14. 80

    N'Zogbia digs in but eventually is worn down by the numbers advantage and can't register a shot from the edge of the area.

  15. 79

    Bennett comes off to an ovation from all over the ground, and Villa will play the rest of the game now with 10 men.

  16. 79

    Vlaar makes another timely challenge on Adebayor, as without a left-back temporarily, Villa are suddenly much weaker on the left side.

  17. 78

    The stretcher is on and this looks very bad indeed for the Villa man. Play resumes but it looks to be the end of Bennett's game.

  18. 78

    Sadly for the Villa left-back, he's taken a knock in that collision and looks to be in some distress.

  19. 77

    Bennett does brilliantly to force Bale to the byline, showing brilliant strength to not only prevent a cross coming in but earn a goal kick for his team.

  20. 76

    Adebayor holds up play on the right, with Lennon's excellently cross incredibly headed wide by Dempsey inside the six-yard box!
