SPURS 1-0 ASTON VILLA
27. If Spurs winning is an unlikely scoreline these days, then Pierre-Emile Hojberg is an unlikely goalscorer.
Yet the midfielder has demonstrated a level of finishing and composure rarely associated with his role to give Spurs the lead, and, on the balance of the last ten minutes, it is deserved.
Aston Villa’s defending is almost non-existent as they drop off to worry about the movement of Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, and that allows Hojbjerg time and space to control outside the box, and then curl in a low 20-yarder into the bottom corner.
For the first time in over a month, Tottenham lead in the Premier League!
