Aston Villa 0-2 Tottenham: Townsend and Soldado get Spurs back to winning ways

Townsend vows to stay grounded after first Premier League goal for Tottenham

Goals in either half from Andros Townsend and Roberto Soldado helped Tottenham to a 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday.

Townsend, who starred in England's final two World Cup qualifiers, continued his rich vein of form, scoring the first after 31 minutes when his expert delivery found its way past Brad Guzan.

Soldado then made sure of three points nine minutes after the hour mark to send Tottenham fifth in the Premier League.
