GOAL FLASH! Aston Villa 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

(9′ mins): The filthy conditions lead to a scrappy opening to the contest. Anwar El Ghazi’s early dead-ball attempt fizzed over after Serge Aurier had checked Jack Grealish. However, Mourinho’s pre-match prediction of a tough encounter was about to get a whole lot harder.

Toby Alderweireld stuck out a leg, diverting El Ghazi’s troublesome centre beyond Hugo Lloris and into his own net.
