The winter break has been and gone but Tottenham Hotspur still look to be a liability when defending their own goal.
Aston Villa have once again proved this theory after they took the lead against Jose Mourinho’s side after just ten minutes of action at Villa Park.
The home side picked up the ball on the right side of the field and El Gahzi beat Ben Davies and played a ball into the penalty area.
Toby Alderweireld and Hugo Lloris both paused for a split second and the Belgian defender toed the ball past his captain and into the back of the net.
Spurs had looked the more threatening of the two teams to break the deadlock, but instead have gifted Dean Smith’s side the lead.
TOTTENHAM OWN GOAL ?♂️
Alderweireld puts through his own net under pressure from Samatta. Terrible defending from the Belgian and Villa are ahead.
