Aston Villa defeats sluggish Tottenham

By Nitin Singh

 Aston Villa stunned Tottenham to hand them their fourth Premier League loss in six games.

Second-half goals from Emiliano Buendia and Douglas Luiz proved decisive for Villa, who were well organised.

The contest between the two happened at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Spurs, who needed to win to retake fourth place from Manchester United, were behind for the tenth straight game.

Emiliano Buendia capitalised on a Hugo Lloris error just after halftime.

Aston Villa now has 21 points and is vying for a top-10 finish after the victory.

Tottenham, who has only won one of their past four games, is currently in fourth position with 30 points, two points behind Manchester United, who has played one fewer game.

Tottenham Spurs were without their star player Dejan Kulusevski.

Dejan Kulusevski was out of the game due to a minor ankle injury.
