Tottenham stretched their unbeaten run to 10 Premier League matches as they closed in on the top four with a 3-1 win over Aston Villa.
Dembele fired Tottenham ahead after only three minutes and Nigerian born England international Alli made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time. Villa surprisingly pulled one back when Jordan Ayew’s 79th minute shot was deflected. The young Ghana forward ran into space before striking a shot which deflected off Toby Alderweireld, beyond Lloris and into the bottom left corner. It was his second goal for Villa since joining from the French league.

However a fine strike from Harry Kane in stoppage time made sure of the win for Spurs.
Villa remain bottom of the table after their seventh straight Premier League defeat, and despite showing the fight for a battle against relegation they need a dramatic turn around after taking only four points from their first 11 games.
