Wanted to state what a brilliant coach Antonio Conte is.

I watched the game live but when I watched the highlights later I began to realise that it was no coincidence that three of the Spurs goals were via the direct route of pinged balls through the middle towards Konsa rather than Mings. Dier, Lloris and Romero punted the ball forward for the first three goals.

This was clearly a tactic identified, worked on and executed with devastating effect. The fact that Kane played a pivotal role in winning headers, flick ons and creating for his team mates generally, from a deeper position confirms this. Kane is happy to sacrifice his own goal scoring contribution in order to win games for Antonio Conte.

Also think Eric Dier and Ben Davies deserve credit for turning things around and proving they are good enough to consistently perform at a decent level. Davies in particular is having a very good second half to the season. He’s been as good as anyone in respect of doing his job and dealing with what comes his way. Also feel very sorry for Doherty regarding the injury. He didn’t want to come off which tells you something. His recent form has been much improved and he is willing to play out of position to help the team.

On the down side I thought Bentancur had a mixed day. He got bullied in the first half but contributed well in the second half when Spurs game management was very professional. Was knocked off the ball and caught in possession several times in the first half but during the second half; along with Romero he played possession football at the back and ran Villa’s tired legs into the ground while occasionally springing counter attacks which brought Spurs further rewards. Slick and clever player. Which brings me to Lloris.

Forget the saves by Hugo. The shots from Cash and Mcginn were routine saves. The two attempts by Ings at the far post, and from the cute free kick by Coutinho, were bad misses by a player who has been dropped and was low on confidence. Watkins effort was probably the best saving contribution Hugo made. Having said that I would have expected most Premier League goalkeepers to have made that save too.

Hugo got the accolades due to the volume of saves he had to make rather than the quality of the saves. Villa were at home and were 1-0 down early after three consecutive defeats. They had to attack Spurs and they did. Villa did not have enough quality in the attacking third to get the job done. Hugo did his job but still offered Villa a free gift towards the end of the game. My point is; Spurs need an upgrade for the number 1 shirt if they want to win trophies.

Kulusevski and Bentancur have transformed Spurs fortunes. They have replaced Winks, Dele, Lo Celso and Ndombele without any fuss or the need for any ego massaging. They are a breath of fresh air and have saved Spurs season.

Agree with most of this, particularly the ‘bullying’ part. Darren Bentancur did well to adjust, but this was down to Conte more than anything sorting Coutinho out. Conte is a gem.

The ref did not help in the bullying, but if stick is being dished out we have to match fire with fire. The Ramsey save was very good. Levy normally gets beat at the near post. Emerson allowed him to dance through when he should have shut the gate.

So that wobble earlier in the season allowed Woolwich back in to take control of 4th spot. It’s their undeniable ‘Arseyness’ that has allowed us back in, as much as anything we’ve done.

“Attacking threat” stats were a JOKE in that 1st half. We should’ve been battered today, they could’ve scored a shedload. Lloris has got us all 3 points. Not very often a player gets a hat trick and doesn’t deserve MotM.

Villa’s pressing was exactly what our squad can’t usually handle. Teams know what Spurs hate and they get up for the match to do exactly that, brutal challenges and 100% commitment to bully us off the park. Fair play to Hojberg today who took his fair share of challenges and gave it back tenfold. Plus his composure on the ball was decent today too.

If the 11 players who played for Spurs yesterday had been fully fit and / or available to play against Southampton, Wolves and Burnley then Spurs would probably be above Chelsea or at least competing with them for 3rd place rather than scuffling for 4th with the rest of the pack.

If Winks had played in the sequence of winning games not all of them would have been wins. For me it is that simple. The game is often won and lost in midfield; especially in the centre of the midfield. Spurs now have 3 players, in Bentancur, Skipp and PEH who can compete and dominate most teams in the EPL and hold their own against the very best teams. Winks was a welcome mat for all comers to trample over and they often did.

The only difference between us, Woolwich and Utd is Conte and out front two. All three clubs have iffy ownership and a similar level of quality (although Utd more on paper) We’ve got the edge with the coach and our finishing.

Either he is really rubbish or he needs time to settle and learn the English translation for “Put it in the mixer”. I know where my thoughts lie. A wing back who can’t offer an attacking option is of what use? An awful purchase that was made by the same people who brought in Darren Bentancur and Kulu. Make sense of that!

As a frequent critic, I must give credit where it’s due and say that Davies has slowly won me over. Not a flashy super defender, but gets the job done decently.

We will need another left-footed CB, but Ben has done well under Conte and is far from the main problem.

On the other hand, I don’t really need to see Ndom, Sanchez, and Winks play for Spurs ever again.

Never understood the lack of support for Ben Davies by some of the fanbase, yes the odd mistake but overall he is solid and committed.
He is probably an easy target as he is quietly spoken and true professional with no issues, but I wouldn’t get on the wrong side of him that’s for sure.

Davies is very good left back in a 433 set as he basically as the do the same as left center back. The system does make difference to his game as he is slow and lack pace, but if watch his movements in the back 3 very is attacking and add support in the final 3rd which incidentally is where I like my wing backs to be.

You’re right, Davies is far from the main problem but he is not the solution either. I wrote a few days ago our back ups became our starters, Davies is one of these. If he was used as cover I wouldn’t have an issue.

I don’t know about that. Davies was a bit of a plodder as a conventional left back. Good enough defensively to deal with most opposition but out of his comfort zone going forward. I think the key to Davies improvement is Conte’s system. The position he is playing in suits his skill set almost perfectly. He is also getting forward at set pieces and through the inside channel when opposing teams are not expecting him to pop up.

He has been solid defensively and has made attacking contributions too. I think he has earned his place tbh but we do need another left footed centre back to bring balance to the squad. We might get away with getting rid of Rodon and Sanchez and bringing in one quality left footer. I have also wondered if Carter Vickers may get a reprieve.

A game of two halves, 4 corner flags and a ref who needs to understand what assault is. I wouldn’t have waited until half time to sort out Coutinho out, but we got away with it because Ings had his boots on the wrong feet. What a great day, in which the stars aligned and both Utd and Arsenal lost. A day to enjoy indeed.

We played well in the second half, the second goal knocked the life out of Villa. Kulu is proving to be a very good loan signing. The lad has a great footballing brain, the way he sat Mings down for goal 4 was superb. He might lack pace, but I’d rather have him than the likes of Dan James.

The icing on the cake would be for Conte to start giving Scarlett 10-15 mins at the end of games when it’s all wrapped up – I just don’t understand why he’s leaving Harry on for the full 90+ when we’re 3 up at 75-80 mins.

Need to be careful with that. A bit of dipping into the experience is good. However, Winks was moved full time into the first team way too soon. He is not fully developed, not a complete player…

Winks does not understand the defensive duties and instincts of a central or of a defensive midfielder, and does not have the vision to be an attacking mid…

And lost the time needed to loan and grow in better levels for him.

Do not want the same happening to other academy players.

With the ref giving us very little and Villa diving while also riding roughshod over our players, we would have more often than not lost this game. The fact that we didn’t and that we eventually thrashed them 4-0 speaks volumes to me about the determination and togetherness of the team.

Conte is the real deal. And apart from the attacking trio, Lloris also deserves a special mention. Villa would have racked up a cricket score against Gollini.

Conte ball involves a lot of sitting lower and breaking. There should be more of a balance and we should push on when a goal up, Newcastle were naive but Villa are not getting sucked in, plus they’re kicking the cr*p out of us. We need to get forward and press them a bit to put them of the back foot more.

Bentancur needs to get his calm head back on – he equals possession for us. He lost it for 20 minutes there

“2nd half team talk = get the ball and keep it. Don’t touch their players or they’ll buy a free kick.

You would imagine after the win against Newcastle last week and the capitulation by Arsenal against Palace that we would have been all over this game with a real chance to push on for a top-four spot but no … yet again.. we fail to rise to the opportunity. we are hanging on for dear life and look lifeless in so many positions. Villa have the energy and we dont.. WTF is that all about yet again!!

Well, Villa have lost three on the bounce, they weren’t going to make it easy and they’re a top 10 PL side at their gaff – were going to have to work for it

They kicked lumps out of us and it worked. This is where Conte will have to earn his corn.

I noticed that, PEH even got booked for one. Seems to be a tactic to get Countinho free kicks.

Cant get out of our own half playing out from the back, and can’t come close to playing a long ball to a white shirt. Half time chill pill is needed, with a Sir Alexesque hairdryer from Conte.
