Tottenham 1 v 2 Aston Villa: Villa fight back to win as Spurs remember Venables

Aston Villa came from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur on the day they remembered former player and manager Terry Venables.

The ex-England manager’s death was announced less than two hours before kick-off, and a minute’s applause was held to pay tribute to a man who won the FA Cup with Spurs as a player in 1967 and as manager in 1991.

Giovani lo Celso’s deflected opener looked to have got the early season pacesetters back on track after their unbeaten start came to an end with back-to-back defeats before the international break.

But Pau Torres levelled with a header deep into first-half added time before Ollie Watkins slotted in his 12th goal of the season to seal Villa’s turnaround.
