It was Ramsey’s fifth league goal.
Villa, who scored the opening goal, continued to lead the game. He organically turned the ball and attempted an attack. On the other hand, Tottenham did not have a proper attack. During the attack, the maintenance was poor, and the build-up was sloppy due to Villa’s pressure.
Son Heung-min’s first shot hit the goal post, leaving regret. In the 24th minute of the first half, Kane saw Son Heung-min digging into the space behind the defense and stabbed a forward pass. In a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper, Son Heung-min beat the goalkeeper and hit the shot, but it bounced off the right post. In an unfortunate moment, the assistant referee declared Son Heung-min offside.

Tottenham’s first shot came in the 8th minute of the second half. Hoivier took the ball from Luis in the Villa camp and connected it to Kane. Kane shot from the center of the box but the goalkeeper saved it.
