Tottenham makes it seven wins in a row against Aston Villa at Villa Park and four on the bounce in the Premier League.
Conte’s men rode out a difficult first half to storm to victory in the second, ruthlessly capitalising on Villa’s defensive frailties.
Son will get the headlines for his hat-trick, but Kane and Kulusevski contributed heavily to this win, as did Spurs’ keeper Lloris who protected his side’s lead when Villa was well on top.

ASTON VILLA 0-1 TOTTENHAM! Spurs take an early lead! It’s a simple goal, too, as Kane lashes Konsa’s poor header against Cash. The ball rebounds to Son, who slots into the bottom left corner from the centre of the box.
GOAL! ASTON VILLA 0-2 TOTTENHAM! Lloris launches forward from the back, and again Villa gets the header wrong. However, Kane manages to nod it down for Kulusevski, who surges into the box and slots into the bottom right corner of the net. It’s a perfect start to the half for the Spurs!
ASTON VILLA 0-3 TOTTENHAM! This game is done. Son slams his second game goal as he’s sent through on goal by a Kane headed pass. Spurs are frighteningly good at the moment. Imagine if they’d had Conte all season!
GOAL! ASTON VILLA 0-4 TOTTENHAM! Son is shining for Tottenham! The South Korean completes his hat-trick by converting Kulusevski’s cutback from the byline. This has been another excellent Spurs performance.
