Tottenham full back DeAndre Yedlin made his debut for the club against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Tottenham made it just one win in the last four games after a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Christian Benteke's first half header was enough to win the game for Villa, with the Belgian outjumping Spurs centre back Federico Fazio to plant a header past Michel Vorm and in off the post.

The defeat was a double-whammy for Spurs fans, who saw their former boss Tim Sherwood return to White Hart Lane for the first time since being sacked by Tottenham almost a year ago - and he led his Villa side to a crucial win in North London.

In a dismal afternoon for Spurs fans, there was one bright spot - the debut for right back DeAndre Yedlin, who was brought on for Vlad Chiriches with just 11 minutes to play.

The speedy United States international impressed at last summer's World Cup, and Spurs subsequently signed him from the Seattle Sounders, before loaning him back to the MLS side.

Now back at White Hart Lane since January, Yedlin has been gradually eased into life in English football, but was called upon against Villa after an injury to regular first choice Kyle Walker.

Fans will be hoping to see more of Yedlin in the coming weeks, and the defender took to Twitter to convey his joy at finally making his long-awaited debut - but noted how disappointed he was with the result.
