Tottenham Hotspur was set as a firm favorite last Saturday afternoon against Aston Villa, but the team had to dig deep in order to claim their victory.
They stood behind in the scoreline already in the ninth minute but managed to revert with a dedicated performance thanks to goals from Alderweird and Heung-Min towards the end of the first halftime.
Even so, the Villans levelled up early in the second while the Spurs looked much better in the second halftime and missed some really good chances before they found the winning goal via Heung-Min in the fourth minute of added time. Even though late, it was more than deserved victory for the Spurs.
They are now in generally fine momentum, having three consecutive victories in Premiership and are just a point behind fourth-placed Chelsea, surely keeping the focus on the Premiership as well.

Striker Kane (20/11) is out injured, as well as midfielder Sissoko (20/2). Right-back Foyth (3/0) and midfielder Lamela (15/2) are doubtful ahead of the start of the match.
After a run of three matches without victory in the Bundesliga, players of RB Leipzig replied with a far better and more positive performance at home against Werder Bremen last Saturday afternoon in a 3:0 victory.
They entered the game really well, opened the scoreline thanks to a goal from Klostermann and doubled up via Schick towards the end of the first halftime. Mukiele scored their third just after the start of the second halftime, with the home team lowering down the tempo as they were perfectly satisfied with the result.
They now broke the ugly mini-run and are just a point behind first-placed Bayern Munich, being also just three points above closest followers from Dortmund and Gladbach.
RB Leipzig team news
The Germans will miss suspended central defender Upamecano (18/0), plus injured central defenders Orban (9/1), Konate (5/0), midfielders Adams (5/0) and Kampl (4/1).
Smells like goals
RB Leipzig doesn't know for any different style but to attack one. Even though they face up against Mourinho's side, it will be difficult for the English team to remain conservative when playing against the Germans. Everything except an open game will be a surprise here since the Germans won't stay much defending.
Spurs need to score and most likely will try, but their defensive lineup also remains more than vulnerable recently. It seems like close to a goal festival this time.
