Tottenham 2 – Aston Villa 0
Mauricio Pochettino named a significantly weakened Tottenham side for the 3rd round FA Cup tie with Aston Villa on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
Only Eric Dier remained from the side that beat Chelsea so comprehensively in midweek. And, Dier was moved from his usual defensive position to central midfield.
The first half was a very dull affair with neither side able to put together too many chances at all.
Ben Davies scores his first goal for Spurs
Tottenham’s attacking play improved with second half substitutions Dele Alli and George Kevin Nkodou.
A minute after the French winger came on, Ben Davies headed home from his left wing cross.
And, Heung Min Son made it 2-0, set up by Moussa Sissoko with 10 minutes to go.
