Tottenham Hotspur interim-manager Ryan Mason has told the club’s official website that he is disappointed at his side’s defeat to Aston Villa.

Mason, who was appointed as the Tottenham boss until the end of the season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month, is not happy with the way his side defended in their 2-1 loss to Villa at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Spurs took the lead in the Premier League game after just eight minutes through Steven Bergwijn, but an own goal from Sergio Reguilon 20 minutes and Ollie Watkins’s effort in the 39th minute saw Villa complete the comeback.

Mason told Tottenham’s official website: “We started brightly, scored a very good goal, felt in full control of the match, no issues, but an unfortunate situation has given them a goal and that changes the momentum, changes the feeling. 

“To then have another unfortunate situation and give them another goal is tough to take. We gave a solid team two goals and in a Premier League match, you cannot do that. 

“It’s hard to create chances, both teams only had four efforts on target, and we’ve given them two goals. It’s disappointing how the game panned out.”

Tottenham’s final Premier League game of the season is against Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Spurs can be backed at 13/1 on Betfair to win the match 1-0.
