Aston Villa seem to have a bad feeling about Tottenham

Aston Villa seem to have a bad feeling about Tottenham players.

Tottenham cruised to a 4-0 victory over Villa in the 28th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) on Tuesday at Villa Park in Birmingham, England. With the win over fourth-place Villa, Tottenham closed the gap at the top of the table to two points.

Led by a goal and two assists from Son Heung-min, with James Maddison, Brennan Johnson, and Timo Werner also finding the back of the net, it’s safe to say that Spurs had one of their best wins of the season. It was a feel-good win, but it wasn’t all smiles if Destiny Udoji was injured.

The controversial situation came in the 20th minute of the second half. As Udoji was trying to advance with the ball on the left side, Villa captain John McGinn made a rough tackle on her. From the looks of it, the tackle wasn’t just for the ball. McGinn tackled Udoji by kicking him from his right knee to his ankle. It was a clear killing tackle.

Udoji was enraged by McGinn’s lack of team spirit and tried to lunge at him, but immediately collapsed in severe pain.

Johnson and Maddison, enraged by McGinn’s behavior, lunged at him, causing a scuffle between the players. The referee immediately ordered McGinn to leave. Udoji was shaken up, but luckily, it didn”t lead to any injuries.Tottenham fans must have been devastated when Udoji went down hard. Every time they faced Villa, important players went down in killer tackles and suffered major injuries. In the 2021-2022 season, Matt Dougherty, 스포츠토토 who was in the midst of his peak form, was injured by a vicious tackle from Matt Cash. Doherty had been forming a good partnership with Dejan Kulusebski and was anchoring Spurs’ right side, but he never recovered from the injury and left the club.

Tottenham fans were also very upset last November. Rodrigo Bentancur, who was returning to the starting lineup after recovering from a ruptured cruciate ligament, was injured again by a tackle from Matt Cash. Again, Cash went for Bentancur’s ankle with the ball loose. Bentancur suffered ankle ligament damage and had to go back to the treatment room. If Udoji had also been injured, playing against Villa would have been a horror for the players.Surprisingly, Villa manager Unai Emery defended McGinn, saying after the game, “The sending off was disappointing,” and then adding, “I think he always plays with passion. It’s only his second sending off in 600 games. He’s always been an honest player, a very competitive person. He’s not a player who acts with bad intentions,” he said in defense of the player.
