Jermaine Jenas and Darren Bent dealt another blow to Aston Villa's Champions League hopes as Tottenham won 2-1 at Villa Park.
Jenas broke the deadlock after five minutes and Bent added his 15th goal of the campaign five minutes into the second period to ease Spurs' relegation fears.
Villa have now gone seven games without a win in all competitions and have dropped out of the top four of the Barclays Premier League for the first time since early December. All they could manage was a late consolation effort from substitute John Carew.
