As Ollie Watkins ghosted behind Eric Dier to slot in Matthew Targett’s whipped cross Dean Smith’s side showed no signs of accepting defeat. Before Villa could settle, Son was on the attack again setting Spurs’ second up sprinting into the penalty area where he found Lucas Moura at the back post – the Brazilian slotted the ball into an empty net.
