Spurs have taken the lead against Aston Villa after 26 minutes of action at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The goal came when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg won the ball just inside the Villa half and released Heung-min Son down the right-hand side, the Dane received the pass inside the D of the area and superbly passed the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

Harry Kane threatened to break the deadlock just minutes earlier when his quick-thinking from a long distance free kick nearly caught out Villa keeper Martinez.

It has been a much better opening half from Nuno Espirito Santo’s side compared to the debacle at the Emirates last weekend, the next goal in this one could be crucial.
