20 May 2021: Premier League, Aston Villa beat Tottenham: List of records broken

Tottenham's push for an European berth suffered a big dent as Aston Villa came back from behind to beat them 2-1 in the Premier League.

Spurs were beaten in front of 10,000 supporters and were the second best for larger spells in the match.

Spurs left-back Sergio Reguilon was responsible for both Villa goals in a poor defensive outing.

Here are the records broken.

TOTAVL: Villa shine against Spurs to take three points

Steven Bergwijn's thumping eighth-minute opener gave Tottenham the lead.

The visitors responded after Reguilon sliced Nakamba's cross into the top corner of his own goal.

Ollie Watkins completed the turnaround before half-time, collecting Reguilon's weak clearance and keeping the challenge of Eric Dier at bay before finding the bottom corner.

Spurs tested Emiliano Martinez post half-time but didn't get an equalizer.

Points: Spurs suffer 12th loss this season, Villa break 50-point mark

Spurs suffered their first home Premier League defeat under Ryan Mason and their sixth overall this season.

As per Opta, this is their most in a league season since also losing six in 2014-15.

Spurs remain sixth for the time being, having collected 59 points from 37 games.

They suffered 12th loss of the campaign.

Meanwhile, 11th-placed Villa raced to 52 points.

Fact: Unique unwanted record for Reguilon

As per Opta, Reguilon's own-goal was the 1,000th scored in Premier League history, 10,483 days after Mark Crossley netted the very first back in August 1992 for Nottingham Forest.

Villa: Villa script these unique records

Ollie Watkins is now the joint-highest scoring Englishman in a Premier League season for Aston Villa.

The England international has scored 14 goals to equal Julian Joachim's tally set in 1998-99.

In another unique record, Villa have won away in the Premier League for the first time in 53 matches when they've conceded the opening goal.
