More Details

Giovani Lo Celso started the score, but Villa rallied for goals from Pau Torres and Ollie Watkins to hand Spurs their third straight loss in North London on Sunday.

Spurs’ next assignment is to go to the Etihad on Sunday, placing them in fifth place in the table and four points behind leaders Manchester City.

They will also enter the big game with a severe injury crisis that grew worse during the Villa defeat. Bentancur was substituted for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after he was forced off the field after 32 minutes due to a poor tackle by Matty Cash.

‘It is his ankle I think. It wasn’t a great tackle,’ the manager said in his post-match press conference.

‘I thought he started the game so well and I think it was the reason we got a real good foothold on the game. He’s such a creative player.

‘We lost Ashley Phillips during the week as well. It is just the situation we’re in at the moment, but we’ll get through it. It might take a little while, but we’ll get through it and as long as we show the same intent and play the football we did today, I’ve got no doubt when we come out the other side, we’ll be a very good football team.’

Meanwhile…

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
