Andros Townsend scores as Tottenham beat Aston Villa 2-0 in Premier League

Johannesburg, Oct 21 : England breakthrough star Andros Townsend continued his fine form when he led his team Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-0 win at Aston Villa in the Premier League, taking them to fifth place in the table.


According to Sport24, the 22-year-old winger, who starred as England booked their place at the World Cup earlier this week, scored the opening goal with a 31st-minute cross that crept past Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Roberto Soldado added a second after half-time as Spurs moved up to fifth place in the table, three points below leaders Arsenal, and began to atone for their shock 3-0 home defeat by West Ham United, the report said.

It was a first defeat in four league games for Paul Lambert's Villa, who now find themselves 13th, but it was a marked improvement on their 4-0 capitulation to the same side in the League Cup last month, the report added.
