Aston Villa Shock Spurs At Home, Chelsea Draw Forest

Tottenham 0 vs Aston Villa 2

ASTON Villa increased the pressure on Tottenham manager Antonio Conte with victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

An error by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in his first game back since the World Cup allowed Emiliano Buendia to score before Douglas Luiz doubled the lead.

A lacklustre Spurs, who fell out of the Premier League top four on Saturday, have now won only two of their past seven matches.

Villa have won back-to-back away league games as they improve under Unai Emery.

It appeared this contest would pit the two keepers who faced off in the 2022 World Cup final penalty shootout against each other, but Argentina’s spot-kick hero Emiliano Martinez had to settle for a place on the Villa bench.

Chelsea 1 vs Nottingham Forest 1

Nottingham Forest battled back to take a deserved point against Chelsea, who lost ground on the Premier League top four at a boisterous City Ground.

Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling volleyed home from five yards after Wily Boly had flicked a cross onto his own bar.

Forest attacked with vigour in the second half and Morgan Gibbs-White crashed a stunning strike off the bar.

Serge Aurier showed fine composure when he controlled the ball on his chest and volleyed home the equaliser.

Chelsea, who have now only won successive league games once under Graham Potter since he was appointed on 8 September, climb above Brighton into eighth but are seven points behind Manchester United in fourth.

Forest go above Wolverhampton Wanderers into 18th and are only behind fourth-bottom West Ham United on goal difference.
