Watkins Goal Against Spurs Places Villa Fourth On EPL Table

Ollie Watkins fired Aston Villa into fourth place in the Premier League as they came from behind to win 2-1 at Tottenham on a day the hosts paid tribute to former boss Terry Venables who died on Saturday at the age of 80.

Unai Emery’s side trailed to Giovani Lo Celso’s first goal of the season in the first half in north London, but Pau Torres equalised just before the break, and Watkins’ 12th goal this term wrapped up an impressive result for Villa.

Villa moved above Tottenham into fourth, with Ange Postecoglou’s team falling two points behind them in fifth after a third successive defeat stalled their early-season momentum.

Sitting just two points behind leaders Arsenal, Villa have won four of their last five league games to spark genuine hopes of a top four challenge.
