Tottenham, with Son Heung-min playing full-time, won 4-0 against Aston Villa, ranked 4th in the league, and achieved two consecutive wins.

Tottenham, who accumulated 53 points, narrowed the gap with 4th place Aston Villa (55 points) to 2 points, increasing the possibility of reclaiming 4th place, which is the Maginot line for advancing to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season.

Tottenham have played one less game than Aston Villa.

Tottenham, with Son Heung-min at the forefront and supported by Brennan Johnson, James Maddison, and Dejan Kulusevski, recorded only one shot and no effective shots despite having 70% possession in the first half.

About 3 minutes into the second half, defender Micky van der Pen was out due to injury and was suddenly replaced by Radu Drugusin, putting them in an even more difficult situation.

However, in the 5th minute of the second half, Madison opened fire and changed the atmosphere.

Pape Sar, who received Kulusevski's forward pass, crossed from the right side, and Maddison rushed in and pushed it in with his left foot, resulting in the first goal.

Then, three minutes later, in a counterattack that started when Kulusevski cut off the opponent's pass, Son Heung-min drove the ball from the center and pushed it to the left, and Johnson finished with his right foot.

In the 20th minute of the second half, Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn made a rough tackle on Tottenham's Destiny Udoggi and received a red card, completely shifting the tide in Tottenham's favor.

Aston Villa's offensive attack continued at the end, but Tottenham, who held off well, took the win as soon as extra time in the second half was entered with a goal by Son Heung-min, who hit Kulusevski's low cross from the right flank with his right foot.

About 4 minutes out of the 10 minutes of extra time had passed, Son Heung-min assisted Werner's goal with a calm cutback from the left side of the penalty area, completely breaking Aston Villa's will to chase.
