Tottenham fans name Mousa Dembele their man of the match against Villa

The Belgian star was in fine form as Tottenham Hotspur overcame Aston Villa this week.

Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter account has announced that Belgian international Mousa Dembele has won the fan vote to name their latest man of the match.

Dembele has been brilliant for Tottenham lately and that fine form continued against Aston Villa on Monday evening, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side ran out 3-1 winners.

Spurs’ goals came from Dembele, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, with Jordan Ayew’s second-half strike for Villa proving to be a mere consolation, and the result lifted the North London club up to fifth in the Premier League table.

Tottenham are now just five points behind league leaders Manchester City and such is this season’s competition that anything could happen between now and May.

One thing is for certain: Tottenham are certainly contenders for a top-four finish and if Dembele keeps playing like this he will be integral to their efforts.

So far this season the 28-year-old has played nine games for Tottenham and he has scored in his last two outings in emphatic victories against Villa and Bournemouth.
