Les Ferdinand shot Spurs into the lead in this Premier League match within five minutes of the start, hitting an angled shot into the net from Ruel Fox's pass, but Villa hit back with Steve Staunton's free-kick rebounding off the underside of the crossbar a minute later.  Walker stopped Collymore's curling shot with a very good one-handed stop and Bosnich had to race from goal to dive at Les Ferdinand's feet after a slide-rule pass from Andy Sinton.  Ferdinand had another effort go too high before Dwight Yorke tied things up in the 27th minute on the break.  

Into the second half, Stan Collymore put Villa ahead in the 57th minute with a rasping shot after Walker had denied Draper and Yorke, but a determined comeback from Spurs earned them three points.  With 65 minutes on the clock, Ferdinand scored a second when he headed home Fox's cross and Fox himself hit a shot into the Villa net for the winner in the 76th minute, after Ferdinand turned provider, heading down Sinton's cross into the winger's path.

Villa celebrated 100 years of football at Villa Park with an equaliser nine minutes from time to earn a Premier League point.

Savo Milosevic and Dwight Yorke missed opportunities that were carved out and Mark Draper hit a 25-yard drive that Walker did well to tip over the top.  Ramon Vega had already gone close from a Howells free-kick, before he headed home a cross from Sheringham to give Tottenham a 54th minute lead with his first Tottenham goal.  However, Yorke snatched a leveller, seizing on a rebound after Walker saved from Staunton, as it looked as though Spurs might leave will the three points.

Allan Nielsen's first Spurs goal was all that separated the two sides in this Premier League match.

Spurs had early openings through Fox and Sheringham, while Walker saved well from Sasa Curcic and Ugo Ehiogu shot over when well placed.  David Howells hit a fine volley that was kept out, then, on the hour, Ruel Fox put in a good cross for Nielsen to shoot home.  Spurs had some late defending to do to keep out Curcic twice and Steve Staunton drove inches wide at the end of the game.

Spurs slipped to a Premier League defeat as Villa ran out 2-1 winners.

Central defender Paul McGrath scored in the 23rd minute to give the visitors the lead, but Ruel Fox fired in a shot off McGrath's ankle to beat Mark Bosnich in the Villa goal to make it 1-1.   However, the points were sealed when Dwight Yorke ran through in the 79th minute to shoot in the winner.

19.11.1994 Gerry Francis' first match in charge saw Tottenham lose out in a high scoring match.

Villa went 3-0 up with goals from Dalian Atkinson (9) and two Graham Fenton goals between the 20th and 26th minutes.  Teddy Sheringham got a goal back for Spurs five minutes before half-time to get Tottenham back into the game, with Jurgen Klinsmann converting a penalty in the 52nd minute to make it 2-3.  

A great comeback was complete in the 73rd minute, when Jurgen netted, although the goal was later attributed to Mark Bosnich in the Villa goal.  Just when it looked like Spurs had salvaged a draw, Dean Saunders popped up in the third minute of injury time to net a winner for the Villans.

Spurs - Sheringham, Klinsmann
Aston Villa -  Bosnich, Fenton, Atkinson, Saunders 

02.03.1994

Spurs conceded an early goal, when Garry Parker raced through to beat Ian Walker, but battled back to earn a point with a determined effort.

It looked as though Bosnich would keep Spurs at bay, having made a fine close range stop from Dozzell and kept out an Anderton penalty, awarded for a foul on Barmby.  That seemed even more likely when Barmby had his spot-kick (given when Bosnich tripped Anderton) saved six minutes into the second half and the Villa goalie stopped efforts from Sedgley and Scott, but Ronnie Rosenthal's header from Barmby's deep cross, 20 minutes from time, gave Spurs a leveller and the team pushed on to search for the winner.  That was only denied them by another outstanding stop from Bosnich when Anderton's shot in the dying moments was turned away.

Ray Houghton shot Villa ahead in the 56th minute of this Fifth Round League Cup tie, but Spurs drew level seven minutes later when Darren Anderton set up Darren Caskey to power his shot past Bosnich.  It was a goal from defender Earl Barrett, who got in front of Erik Thorstvedt and headed home Garry Parker's in-swinging corner that restored Villa's lead.

Tottenham pressed for an equaliser in the remaining 22 minutes, but John Hendry was unlucky to see his shot bounce back off the crossbar and Nick Barmby narrowly missed with an overhead kick, but Villa hung on to progress in the competition.

Strike partner Clive Allen hit the Spurs third after Glenn Hoddle's shot rebounded off the post and then made it 4-2, as Paul Elliott had headed Villa's second in between his two goals.  The match was played out in front of the lowest crowd for a match between the two sides at White Hart Lane.

A goal from John Chiedozie won this match for Spurs away at Aston Villa and helped the side continue their good early season form that saw them top the Canon League after this game.  The Nigerian winger came when Crooks took the ball off Tony Dorigo and ran forward to square for Chiedozie to hit a shot past former Orient team-mate Mervyn Day in the Villa goal.

Spurs were without Glenn Hoddle, Graham Roberts, Osvaldo Ardiles and Clive Allen, but Mike Hazard fired in a 25 yard drive that shook the crossbar and knocked the raindrops, from an earlier shower, flying from it.  Tottenham's win was preserved by Steve Perryman's athletic clearance from the goal-line denied Gordon Cowans what looked like a certain goal.

A piece of determination by Gordon Cowans won this Division One game for Villa.

David Geddis marked his debut with a goal and then got carried off in an eventful first match in Division One for Villa.  

Gordon Cowans put Geddis in on the edge of the penalty area and the young striker fired a shot into the roof of the net on 21 minutes to give the away side the lead.  Geddis had been involved in a penalty shout prior to this and he fell a bit too easily when rounding Daines and getting half-tripped.  The Spurs keeper was not so lucky later on, when he brought down Little, who had intercepted Perryman's back-pass and Cowans converted the spot-kick to give the visitors a two goal cushion.

It was one they needed, as Keith Burkinshaw's team roared back and got a goal back from Ossie Ardiles in the 76th minute and then Chris Hughton lobbed Jimmy Rimmer only to see his effort hit the inside of the post and roll along the goal-line before it was hacked away, thus preserving Villa's advantage.

Glenn Hoddle's penalty goal was all there was to cheer about on a night when a tickertape welcome for Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa fell flat.

Aston Villa went ahead in this meeting at White Hart Lane, but Spurs came back to secure a 3-1 victory.

Nine minutes in Villa took the lead when John Deehan headed home Dennis Mortimer's corner, but Tottenham levelled when Glenn Hoddle beat John Burridge with a precisely placed free-kick from just outside the penalty area at the Paxton Road end.

Peter Taylor came on as a 68th minute substitute sparked a late revival to get Spurs a vital 3-1 win.  Firstly, Chris Jones turned a Steve Perryman long throw over his shoulder from
the right hand edge of the six yard box to put Tottenham ahead in the 85th minute, then Ralph Coates crossed for substitute Taylor to score and seal the victory with a shot just inside the right hand post of the keeper John Burridge to make it 3-1.

04.12.1976 Tottenham's away game against Aston Villa on 4th December 1976 was postponed because of the pitch being unfit to play the game.  The decision was made late in the day.
 
13.03.1976 Spurs ran riot against Aston Villa at home with a 5-2 win that brought them two valuable First Division points.

The first Spurs goal came from Chris Nicholl's attempted interception of a cross that he diverted past his own goalkeeper. John Duncan fired the second with a left footed shot from the edge of the penalty area and Steve Perryman added the next goal, shooting in with his right foot from 18 yards at the Park Lane end.

Into the second half, Tottenham went on to add two more goals, with Don McAllister getting in among the defenders to convert a ball in from the right wing from inside the six yard box and substitute Martin Robinson got his first Spurs goal, volleying into an empty net after a left wing cross had taken out the goalkeeper.

The first half had been an even affair, with play moving quickly, but the second period contained too many stoppages and unnecessary bookings, leading to Naylor's sending off. In the 52nd minute, Villa's Andy Gray nodded home a cross from Ray Graydon to go ahead, before both Terry Naylor and Villa's Leighton Phillips were booked for an incident off the ball.  It was a second offence by Naylor in the 66th minute that saw him sent off, but Tottenham dug in and when Jimmy Neighbour's free kick came in on 82 minutes, John Pratt headed an equaliser.

27.02.1971 Spurs eventually saw off a determined challenge from Third Division Aston Ville in the League Cup final to win the trophy for the first time.

Villa had gone close to scoring when forward Andy Lochhead and Spurs stand-in centre-half Peter Collins (Mike England had broken his ankle) collided and were both prostrate on the floor, but Steve Perryman was aware of the danger as the ball rolled towards the open goal, getting there just in time to kick the ball off the line.

Jimmy Neighbour shot low at goal from the left hand corner of the penalty area and Villa keeper John Dunn did well to get down to block the ball out.  Unfortunately for the Division Three club, the ball ran into the path of Martin Chivers, who shot home right footed past a defender on the line.


Chivers then drilled home a low shot for the second goal past two defenders and  the goalkeeper from the edge of the area to put the game beyond Aston Villa's reach and secure Tottenham's first piece of silverware for four years.

29.10.1966 Aston Villa were in the relegation zone when they arrived at White Hart Lane, but left North London with two points courtesy of a 1-0 win.

Spurs put in a desperate performance and Villa were worthy of their win albeit from a Lew Chatterley goal that gently bobbled in off the goalpost.

19.03.1966 An amazing First Division match at White Hart Lane saw Spurs share ten goals with Aston Villa.

Alan Gilzean notched the first goal with a neat header from six yards out in the second minute, with Jimmy Greaves doubling the lead ten minutes later, converting after his first shot had been saved.  In the 14th minute, Frank Saul made it 3-0 before Tony Hateley headed in a goal for Villa. 

Defender Laurie Brown headed in the fourth Spurs goal from the edge of the six yard box from a cross from the right and Tottenham's fifth goal was scored by a diving Jimmy Robertson, who headed home from a left wing cross just after the break. 

5-1 up at half-time, some seriously poor defending let Villa come back to draw 5-5 at the final whistle.  Hateley scored twice in four second half minutes to complete his hat-trick, and Deakin pulled it back to 5-4 and with 79 minutes on the clock, Hateley popped up again to make it 5-5.

Three minutes were left, when Deakin was in a position to shoot, after he had taken Jennings wide of the goal, but Alan Mullery appeared from nowhere to nick the ball away as the Villa man prepared to shoot.

A frustrating start with Villa playing an offside trap, made Spurs wait until the 21st minute for John White to score the opening goal.

Two goals in twelve first half minutes from Jimmy Greaves took Spurs into a 3-0 lead at the break, but Derek Dougan and Alan Deakin brought the visitors right back into the game.  Bill Brown kept Villa out with a great display in goal and Cliff Jones wrapped up the game for Tottenham with a goal two minutes from the end.

10.03.1962 Aston Villa visited White Hart Lane for a Sixth Round FA Cup tie but were knocked out as Spurs went on to the semi-final.

An exciting cup tie played in wet conditions after continuous rain had made a slick, but heavy surface to the pitch, saw Tottenham come out of a high tempo match as 2-0 winners.

The first half saw Spurs rattle the woodwork twice through Jimmy Greaves and Terry Medwin, but there was no score at half-time. It only took two second half minutes for Danny Blanchflower to break the deadlock with a low 25 yard shot and then in the 49th minute, Medwin put Greaves away on the wing and his cross was headed home by Cliff Jones.

Spurs took two points away from Villa Park in a really good game between two sides, who failed to score in the first half, although, with Cliff Jones in fine form, Villa had to defend in numbers to keep the score-board blank at the interval.

Tottenham broke the deadlock shortly after the interval when Les Allen's right wing run produced a cross for Bobby Smith to head home.  Ten minutes later, a right wing cross was crashed home on the volley by Terry Dyson.  Villa's Stan Lynn put a penalty past Brown to narrow the gap, but Mackay and Blanchflower held firm in defence to keep the home side out.

It took Spurs 65 minutes to break down a determined Villa defence, but once Alfie Stokes had converted the keeper Keith Jones' save from George Robb's shot, the following goals came easier.  Ten minutes later, Bobby Smith side-footed Terry Dyson's volley home and the same player created a third for Stokes on 79 minutes.  The score-line could have been bigger had Tommy Harmer scored from the penalty spot, but his effort hit the inside of the post and bounced into the grateful arms of Jones.

15.09.1956 Spurs won the encounter with the Midlands side at Villa Park with a 4-2 score-line.

Derek Pace and Johnny Dixon went close to giving the home side the lead, but they were both denied by excellent saves from Ted Ditchburn.  However, the Spurs keeper was helpless when Peter McPartland smashed a shot from the left hand side of the area and then the lead was doubled just two minutes later, when Pace seized on a poor defensive clearance.

With ten minutes to half-time, Bobby Smith headed in George Robb's corner and then had to retreat to a wing position, as a nail in his boot had to be dealt with, while Bobby played on with one boot !  A clash between Ditchburn and Jackie Sewell left the Villa man needing treatment and the home supporters behind the goal threw paper balls at the Spurs goalie.  There was still time for Robb to provide the cross from another corner to find Tommy Harmer, who met it with expert timing to find the net and make it 2-2 at the break.

In the 48th minute, Robb finished a solo run with a good shot to give Tottenham the lead and then the crossbar came to Spurs' aid when Pace's header bounce away off the woodwork.  Terry Medwin drove in a shot in the 54th minute, but it was blocked, although only as far as Alfie Stokes, who netted the loose ball to make it 4-2 to Spurs.  It was a lead they held to the end, with Bill Baxter suffering concussion with 20 minutes to go and leaving the home side with only ten fit men.

Baily's seventh minute goal was the difference between the sides for 18 minutes until John Dixon levelled for the Villans, which could have been the goal to give them the lead had Stan Lynn not hit the bar with a penalty between the goals.  Equally, Alf Ramsey could have changed the score, but put his penalty wide of the right hand post to leave the honours share din a match which saw Danny Blanchflower make his debut against the side he had just signed from for 30,000.

06.01.1934 A brilliant display of attacking football earned Spurs their biggest away victory of a season that saw them finish third in Division One as they crushed Aston Villa 5-1.

Jimmy McCormick opened the scoring in the 10th minute, when he headed home a loose ball from close range after George Hunt had been denied by a save at his feet from Morton, the Villa keeper.  Spurs had played on without defender Davie Colquhoun as he had a head wound stitched, but he was back on when they doubled their advantage as full-back Tom Meads hit home a rare goal from 25 yards.  A rampant Spurs made it 4-0 before half-time leaving Villa shell-shocked through the prolific forward George Hunt in the 23rd minute and twelve minutes later Les Howe, who hammered home a glorious goal from 20 yards in off the underside of the bar.

Spurs took their foot off the pedal in the second half due mainly to the fact that they had to play with ten men after wing-half David Colquhoun with concussion, but McCormick scored the fifth Tottenham goal after beating both full backs and taking the ball around Morton to slip the ball into the net.

In the 80th minute, Aston Villa's frustration was complete when striker Pongo Waring, already spoken to twice by the referee, barged into Arthur Rowe and Joe Nicholls in quick succession, earning a dismissal from the ref.

Villa managed to pull back a consolation goal with five minutes left, through Astley.

Spurs travelled to Villa Park for a meeting in the First Division and they were grateful to keeper Alexander Hunter, who kept Tottenham in the game with some good saves, but was beaten by Billy Kirton in the 10th minute to put Villa 1-0 ahead.   Spurs then took the game to the home side for an hour and got level when, coming in from the wing, Jimmy Dimmock hit a shot under the keeper.
