Premier League 2022-23, Aston Villa stun Tottenham 2-0: Key stats
Aston Villa stunned Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in a crucial Premier League 2022-23 season on Sunday.

Pressure will now be looming large on Antonio Conte, whose side has won two of its past seven matches. Here's more.
A major win for Emery's Villa
Villa have shown plenty of improvement under Unai Emery and this was a massive result. Hugo Lloris was guilty in the 50th minute, spilling Luiz's long-range effort which saw Ollie Watkins square the rebound for Buendia to slam home. Luiz was instrumental again as he slid a pass to John McGinn before receiving the return and chipping the ball past Lloris.
