Rafael van der Vaart cemented his status as Tottenham's new talisman as they came from behind to beat Aston Villa 2-1 in the Barclays Premier League and once again avoid a European hangover.

Van der Vaart scored twice to take his tally to four goals in three appearances at White Hart Lane, his £8million signing looking more of a bargain by the day.

Not for the first time after a Champions League match this season, Spurs paid for a slow first half and Marc Albrighton's first professional goal almost handed Villa a half-time lead but Van der Vaart levelled deep into injury-time before rifling home a 75th-minute winner.
