Aston Villa vs Tottenham key stats

Tottenham took a 2-0 lead thanks to goals in the 50th and 53rd minute from James Maddison and Brennan Johnson.

John McGinn was then sent off in the 65th minute to kill the game off before Heung-min Son and Timo Werner added injury-time goals.

Here are all the key stats from Spurs’ drubbing of Aston Villa:

  • Only three players have provided 60+ Premier League assists for Tottenham: Darren Anderton (67), Christian Eriksen (62), Heung-min Son (60).
  • John McGinn was sent off for the first time in his Premier League career (162 games).
  • Sunday was Unai Emery’s heaviest home defeat as a Premier League manager and Ange Postecoglou’s biggest win as a Premier League manager.
  • Since the start of 2022, all six instances of a Spurs player being directly involved in 3+ goals in a Premier League game have been by Son Heung-Min (one goal and two assists vs Villa).
  • Sunday’s game was Unai Emery’s joint-heaviest home defeat as a manager, with today’s 4-0 scoreline in charge of Aston Villa equalling a 5-1 loss against Dinamo Moscow in the Russian Premier League in November 2012 (while in charge of Spartak Moscow).
