Tottenham Hotspur 5 Aston Villa 1

Rampant Tottenham kept their European hopes very much alive with a 5-1 victory over clueless Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.

Spurs raced into a three-goal lead in the opening half with Mali striker Fredi Kanoute hitting a double either side of skipper Ledley King's 18th-minute effort.

Villa grabbed a lifeline when Gareth Barry converted a spot-kick in the closing stages of the first half but Andy Reid unleashed a stunning 25-yard shot in the 66th minute for the fourth and Stephen Kelly put Spurs seventh in the Barclays Premiership with a fifth in the last minute.

Tottenham had almost stunned their visitors inside the first two minutes when King forced Stefan Postma into a fine save.

The Spurs skipper met Reid's inswinging corner from the right and planted a firm header goalwards which Postma did well to palm away.

Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson had also been forced into an early save as Steve Davis burst through to unleash a right-foot drive that the England man did well to save low to his right.

Villa were furious they were not awarded a penalty in the fifth minute when Erik Edman appeared to foul Mark Delaney inside the box, but within seconds Spurs capitalised on their good fortune by taking the lead.

Robinson quickly collected the ball and punted it high towards Kanoute. The Mali international got the better of Liam Ridgewell and fired home via the inside of the right-hand post to the fury of the Villa players.

Villa goalkeeper Postma was so incensed that referee Mark Clattenburg had failed to award Villa a spot-kick that he chased the official to the centre circle. He was duly booked for his protest.

Spurs, needing a victory to keep their slim UEFA Cup hopes alive, were without England striker Jermain Defoe. He had been left on the bench by coach Martin Jol in favour of Kanoute and Robbie Keane in attack.

Tottenham were two up in the 18th minute through skipper King. Reid's 20-yard shot through a crowded penalty area rebounded off Villa's left-hand post and when Sean Davis failed to take advantage of the loose ball, King tapped home from six yards.

Davis forced Postma into another fine save at his near post when the former Fulham midfielder got on the end of a Kanoute cross.

But it did not matter because Spurs increased their lead in the 26th minute when Villa failed to clear the subsequent corner.

Keane's attempted turn and shot fell to kindly to Kanoute and the Mali man struck his second of the game by firing high into the top corner from the angle of the six-yard box.

In the 43rd minute Villa got back into the game when Michael Dawson was adjudged to have handled a shot by Juan Pablo Angel.

Barry gave Robinson no chance by firing the spot-kick powerfully down the middle and into the roof of the net.

However, in the 50th minute, Villa almost reduced the deficit still further when Darius Vassell burst into the penalty area and forced Robinson into a one-handed save with a powerful shot.

On the hour, Robinson and Vassell were hurt when they collided inside the penalty area and both players required treatment before they could continue.

Robinson was clearly struggling and Spurs took no chances by substituting the England goalkeeper for understudy Radek Cerny.

The Spurs number one looked to have hurt his right knee in the collision with Vassell and was warmly applauded as he limped around the perimeter of the pitch.

In the 66th minute, Reid put the game beyond Villa's reach with a tremendous 25-yard strike.

The Spurs winger broke clear and as the Villa defence backed off, Reid left fly with a superb left-foot drive that cannoned into the net off the underside of the crossbar.

In the 75th minute Spurs coach Jol opted to introduce Defoe and Egyptian forward Mido into the action as replacements for Kanoute and Keane.

The changes almost brought Spurs a fifth in the 83rd minute when Defoe's 18-yard effort was deflected on to the top of the crossbar.

The striker was then thwarted by Postma three minutes from time as Spurs cut through the Villa defence with ease.

Kelly added a fifth for Spurs in the final minute.

Well, this was a close match

I've been trying for 2 hours to get an application for Tickets turned
in. No such luck. Looks like 40 countries ticket series are sold out
now. I'm going to be looking high and low for tickets it seems.

well all i will say is im disappointed with how fifa do this. there
should be no tickets available to buy at all yet. tickets should only
be sold once we know who is playing what matches. its a disgrace and a
complete disrespect to the competition with how its done. i want it
done so that the 2 countries involved get their choice of taking up
the allocation of tickets and only once its done that then it goes on
general sales. sure if they want sponsors to have 25% then fine......i
dont think its right but not alot u can do about it really. i just
dont want no johhny foreigner being at an england game and not putting
as much passion into the game as an englishman would. i just want the
true fans to be there.........what this leads to with how they do it
is touts making a huge profit and the genuine fans getting fucked
over. vote me in as fifa president now and i will sort out this big mess!

Actually, they are trying to level the availablility of tickets for
all people involved not just to those who have the most money and can
pay the most. By making it Team Specific then the fans will get
their chance. The country's football association is allocated 8% of
the tickets for their matches.

Well my hopes ride on Romania it looks like. (However I didn't get a
confirmation for that even though it shows in my applications) And
if that doesn't work out then Latvia whom I did get a confirmation
for. Slim chances for tickets in either situation. Else, it's buddy
up to the US Soccer federation.
