Bjorn Engels' awful error gifts Heung-min Son last minute winner in Aston Villa vs Spurs

Aston Villa v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Tottenham scored a last minute winner against Aston Villa in dramatic circumstances.

Toby Alderweireld's own-goal gave the home side a ninth minute lead.

But Spurs would come battling back. Alderwiereld made amends for his mistake by netting in the right end just before the half-hour mark.

And Jose Mourinho's side would hit the front just before the break.

Steven Bergwijn was felled inside the penalty area, giving Spurs a penalty.

Heung-min Son stepped up and saw his effort saved by Pepe Reina, but he reacted fastest to turn the ball home and give his side a half-time lead.

Aston Villa battled back though and Bjorn Engels turned home a Jack Grealish corner to restore parity.

Spurs had numerous chances to take the lead once again but they were thwarted time and time again by Reina.

But the Spanish goalkeeper was beaten in the last seconds of the game and it was Engels who turned from hero to zero.

The Belgian defender's lapse of concentration allowed Son to run in on goal.

Finding himself one-on-one with Pepe Reina, the South Korean coolly finished to give his side a vital three points.

Watch it below:

That is schoolboy stuff from Engels.

The Belgian defender looked devastated after his mistake and that's completely understandable. He cost his side a much-needed and deserved point.

Villa put in a shift for 90 minutes but found themselves undone in the final seconds.

They still occupy 17th spot in the Premier League, just one point above the relegation zone.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have moved up to fifth. With City being given a two-year European ban on Friday, Spurs now occupy a Champions League spot.

That mistake from Engels could prove to be hugely significant for both sides.
