Tottenham Hotspur won 2-1 at Aston Villa thanks to a late goal from Harry Kane.
Tottenham Hotspur managed to grind out a 2-1 win away at Aston Villa after going behind, securing a vital three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Goals from Nacer Chadli and substitute Harry Kane got Tottenham over the line, with pressure now on Pochettino to start the latter looking ahead to next weekend’s match against Stoke City.
It wasn’t a pretty performance with Pochettino visibly angry during the first half as wasteful passing and poor control saw Tottenham fall behind and waste a number of good attacking opportunities.
Tottenham have the chance to take one eye off of the league for a few days as they prepare for the Europa League match against Asteras where Pochettino will more than likely show his hand in terms of how he’ll set the side up for that game against Stoke, with certain players likely to be rested.
Here’s what Tottenham Hotspur’s stars had to say after the game on social media.
Wasn't pretty but was an important victory today, fans were class!!' Buzzing for our main man… http://t.co/dtVYshpElc— Ryan Mason (@Ryan_Mason13) November 2, 2014
