Highlights: Tottenham 3-1 Aston Villa

By on 10th August 2019

Tottenham Hotspur scored three goals in the final 20 minutes to come from behind to start the 2019-20 Premier League season with a victory.

Last season’s EFL Championship winners got off to an excellent start when a slip from Danny Rose gifted a great opportunity to John McGinn to fire Aston Villa into a ninth minute lead.

Dean Smith’s side had an opportunity to double their lead in the first half but went into the break with a 1-0 lead.

The introduction of Christian Eriksen just after the hour saw Tottenham increase the intensity before they finally equalised. Big summer signing Tanguy Ndombele blasted home the equaliser from outside the box before Harry Kane’s fine left-footed finish five minutes from time put Spurs on their way to victory.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side confirmed those three points when Kane grabbed his second in stoppage time. The 2018-19 Champions League runners-up travel to Premier League champions Manchester City next Saturday.
