• Last-gasp Son strike seals Spurs victory at Villa

    Son Heung-min pounced on Bjorn Engels’ error to score a last-gasp winner as Tottenham Hotspur won an enthralling Premier League contest 3-2 at Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

    Engels’ equaliser appeared to have earned the relegation-threatened hosts a point at Villa Park, but his failure to control a long ball allowed Son to coolly steer past Pepe Reina.

    Son had earlier put Spurs 2-1 in front from the rebound of a penalty awarded as a result of an Engels foul shortly before half-time, the forward’s first in the game coming after teammate Toby Alderweireld had scored at both ends.

    Villa remain just a point above the bottom three, while Champions League-chasing Spurs are just one point adrift of fourth-place Chelsea.
