Much, much better. Tottenham Hotspur capped off a terrible week with a good match — a 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park. Sure, Villa didn’t have Jack Grealish and hence didn’t put up too much of a fight over 90 minutes, but hands up if you expected Spurs to lay an egg in this match, considering all the bad karma hanging like a storm cloud over the club this week.
Goals from Carlos “Vinigol” Vinicius and Harry Kane, a clean sheet, and three points that puts Spurs three points out of fourth. Job done.
Let’s rate the players.
Rate the players from 1⁄2 to 5 stars. If the player doesn’t deserve a rating due to minutes played, DO NOT RANK. I will round the stars up/down to the nearest half-star for the player ratings later this week.
