Aston Villa could hold to the deadlock until the 70th minute and it was pretty impressive on their part. A robust display overall, Bruce’s men never the favourites in this fixture anyway, but they definitely played like one till the end.
The Best And Worst Aston Villa Players Rated From Their Loss Vs Tottenham Hotspurs in FA Cup
Johnstone (7/10)- His selection reflected the amount of Bruce has on him. And he repaid it well. The loanee from Manchester United looked really confident and had a calm presence in the box.
There was a certain command in his movements.
Hutton (6.5/10)- Aston Villa had a pretty decent game until the start of the final quarter when Davies’ goal pretty much broke their spirit.
Hutton had a great game where he looked rock solid in his defence and even moved up occasionally.
Chester (7.5/10)- Was a perfect leader most of the game. He kept the back four intact and had a crucial clearance from Son’s cross-shot. He looked alerted at all times displaying disciplined defending.
Baker (7/10)- Janssen wasn’t sharp at all throughout the game and Baker’s persistent defending made it even more difficult for him.
His continuous battle with the Belgian was interesting and he had a decent performance.
Amavi (6/10)- Son’s tremendous pace on the flanks gave serious problems for him and he had to be on his toes all the times.
