In the wake of Aston Villa’s 2-1 victory against Tottenham, where his team was made to suffer before taking a crucial three points in north London, Unai Emery says he ran out of energy.

Giovani Lo Celso’s goal for Tottenham in the 22nd minute broke the scoreless early exchanges after both teams missed a handful of excellent opportunities to take the lead.

Villa finished the first half second best, but Pau Torres’ header from Douglas Luiz’s free kick in additional time pulled them even.

Youri Tielemans entered the game at the beginning of the second half, combining with Ollie Watkins to create a one-two before the striker scored past Guglielmo Vicario.

With the victory, Villa will spend their first day in the top four spots in the Premier League at least 13 games into the season—a feat they haven’t accomplished since December 27, 2009.

“Three points, it was an amazing match, both teams different ways tactically but really hard, really tough,” Emery stated in the press conference that followed the game.

“We made opportunities, they made chances. In the attack, we operated with efficiency and tact. I had fun with it, but I was exhausted!

“Each game consists of three points, but naturally, Tottenham led us by one point and has a loyal fan base. It is really challenging. In the process of building, we are gaining something.

“We were extremely focused on the match following the work we completed on Friday, yesterday, and this morning. examining, getting ready, and concentrating on every game. The participants in the game plan were successful because they were ready.”
