Tottenham Hotspur’s wretched Premier League away form continued with a 2-1 during Aston Villa vs Tottenham that left their hopes of qualifying for Europe in the balance on Saturday.

Aston Villa vs Tottenham: Match Summary

Tottenham did show more appetite after the break but there was no coming back after Villa’s Douglas Luiz found the net with a 72nd-minute free kick that keeper Fraser Forster should have saved.

Villa were full value for the points, which boosted their own hopes of a European finish, although they did have some anxious moments late on after Harry Kane fired home a penalty.

Ryan Mason’s side did, however, come close to equalising in the second half before Luiz’s set-piece strike as Emiliano Martinez denied Harry Kane, while substitute Dejan Kulusevski curled an effort just wide of the post.

But Kane scored a 90th-minute penalty to set up a nervy finish at Villa Park with Heung-Min Son having a last-minute goal ruled out for offside.

Unai Emery’s side moved up a place to seventh with 57 points – the same as sixth-placed Tottenham with both sides having two games left to play.

Eighth-placed Brighton and Hove Albion, who face Arsenal on Sunday, are two points behind both Villa and Spurs but have three games in hand in the battle to qualify for Europe.

Up next for Aston Villa is a crucial game in their quest for Europe as they face fellow contenders Liverpool at Anfield next Saturday. Unai Emery’s side then host Brighton on the final day of the season.

Tottenham will also get a better understanding of which European competition they will be in after their next game against Brentford next Saturday.
