  1. Spurs deservedly claim all three points without having to be at their best against Aston Villa. There was little between the sides in the first-half, but Andros Townsend's fluke opener gave Spurs a goal at a crucial time. Villa did not carry a threat until the arrival of Christian Benteke just past the hour, but Tottenham added a crucial second soon after through Roberto Soldado and it was a body blow that Villa never looked like recovering from.

  2. 90+3

    Lennon is booked for bringing down Weimann as tempers threaten to boil over at the end.

  3. 90+2

    Delph is booked for cynically chopping down Townsend.

  4. 90

    We will have a minimum of four minutes added time.

  5. 89

    Dawson does well to get a foot in as Benteke looked to get in a shot. Luna then surges into the box and pulls the ball back for Weimann whose shot from eight yards is blocked.

  6. 88

    Benteke tries to muscle his way into the box but is penalised for a foul on Dembele.

  7. 87

    Walker is needlessly booked for not giving the bal back for a throw in.

  8. 86

    Villa continue to come forward to their credit but their earlier belief has now gone.

  9. 85

    Spurs make their final change with Defoe replacing Soldado.

  10. 84

    Weimann then finds Tonev on the edge of the box, but Dawson gets in a partial block which makes the save for Lloris a comfortable one.

  11. 83

    Tonev does well to get in a low cross which Weimann is just unable to get to at the far post.

  12. 82

    The home fans are heading for the exits now - they obviously don't think a comeback is on the cards.

  13. 81

    Paulinho takes it and Vertonghen gets in a looping header that Guzan easily gathers.

  14. 80

    Townsend is getting stronger as the game goes on and wins a corner after another jinking run.

  15. 79

    Townsend surges past Luna and whips in a low cross which Paulinho only has to touch home, but somehow it goes wide from close range.

  16. 78

    Villa make their final change with Tonev replacing Agbonlahor.

  17. 77

    Weimann tries an ambitious shot from 25 yards but it's high and wide into the Holte End.

  18. 76

    Spurs are now brimming with confidence and are keeping possession effortlessly - I can see them scoring again.

  19. 75

    The belief that had built around the introduction of Benteke was shattered by that second goal and apart from the Spurs section, Villa Park has gone quiet again.

  20. 74

    Spurs counter and Townsend cuts inside before unleashing a rasping drive that is just inches over.
