Tottenham rescued at the very end

Tottenham took on Sunday, the third victory in a row in the Premier League as Aston Villa at stamford bridge were beaten 3-2.

More than three minutes in injury time settled the Son Heung-min affair, as sydkoreaneren got a friløber down against hjemmeholdets goals and udplacerede Pepe Reina in the Aston Villas goal.

It looked a long time in addition to the 37-year-old Reina with small miracles inside on the line to ensure the hosts one point.

Son, Parts Alli and Giovani had in the second half had great opportunities, but each time came the spaniard in the Aston Villas goal in the way.

With the Sons of late scoring moves Tottenham up the league's fifth place finish, and manager José Mourinho can now look back on a streak with victories over Aston Villa, Manchester City and Norwich.

Mourinhos crew is in no way a well-oiled machine, and Sunday caused forsvarsspillet big problems.

A quarter of an hour later did Alderweireld it 1-1, when the ball just randomly ended up with him. The belgian turned around on itself and pressed skillfully the ball in the nettaget.

Tottenham took the lead just before the break when Son Heung-min was set to execute a penalty kick. Sydkoreanerens attempt was saved by Reina, but the striker came even up and made it 2-1.

the Hosts from Aston Villa came up to speed, as Björn Engels headede the ball into the goal for 2-2, after that he had won a melee in the box against compatriot Alderweireld.

Björn Engels messed up, however, good and thoroughly in injury time, when he had the chance to get hold of the pass, who gave the Son Heung-min, the crucial friløber. The ball slipped between the legs of the Angel, and then took Tottenham all three points.
