Aston Villa vs Tottenham highlights (2-3)

Aston Villa 2 vs 3 Tottenham highlights 18.2

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho to BBC Sport: "I thought we deserved to win but I think they did not deserve to lose. Villa played to win."

On the Spurs penalty: "Steven Bergwijn, I don't know if I call him naive or too honest - the referees tell us pre-match, 'Don't ask for anything, don't surround me, don't do the motion of the screen'. The action was there and it was a question of to be or not to be, and clearly it was."

On Alderweireld's contribution: "In a funny way I'd say he's scored three goals: the own goal, his goal and then when he loses the duel with Engels. But he scored with a shot of his life."

On the opportunity to get into the Champions League by finishing fifth after Manchester City's ban: "Not just for us. A window opens for many teams. What seemed far, now the fifth place is not far. Arsenal, Everton, Sheffield United, Wolves, everyone will feel they have the chance."

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith to Sky Sports: "We have to try and take the positives. The last two games we've scored late winners here, so now we know how it feels on the other foot. We had chances to win the game but we weren't clinical enough.

"They have a front four that can hurt anyone, that's why we had to get forward and defend on the front foot. On the whole, I thought we dealt with them really well but we're disappointed with the goals we conceded.

"We probably gave away too many chances from counter attacks, which they're good at, but we didn't deserve to lose that. It was a good performance against a team that are fifth in the league but we deserved more than that."
