Spurs’ challenge for the Premier League 2019-20 season nearly got off to a bad start against newly promoted Aston Villa.

Pochettino’s side found themselves with their back behind the walls as McGinn put Villa in front in the ninth minute of the game.

They failed to draw level against Villa at Half-time with Spurs only hitting a single shot on target.

With Tottenham trailing Villa after the First Half, a lot of people were already saying that their Title hopes were already over.

The second half saw the same story repeat as they were unable to take their chances to draw level.

Finally Tanguy Ndombele’s strike helped tie the match. The club record signing scored on his debut with a curled strike from 25 yards.

Ndombele put Spurs back on track with a goal.

Kane put the hosts on top with just four minutes remaining lashing on a loose ball after Erik Lamela’s shot pinged off Tyrone Mings and Bjorn Engels.

He scored again three minutes later to put the result to rest. As Pochettino and his men breathed a huge sigh of relief.

It really was not the most impressive display from a side vying to compete for the title but they can’t be written off so soon.

Tottenham play Manchester City next Saturday in their next round of Premier League fixtures.
