Aston Villa 2-3 Tottenham: Son pounces on Engels error to settle thriller

Aston Villa were made to rue a late error as Tottenham won a barnstorming Premier League clash at Villa Park.

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

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 team-mate 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.
