Ashley Young came to Aston Villa’s rescue during the first half of Sunday’s Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur.
The experienced full-back, who was named in Unai Emery’s starting lineup to face Spurs, rolled back the years with a brilliant last-ditch piece of defending that prevented Harry Kane from opening the game’s scoring.
Kane, who rose highest following a floated cross from Ivan Perisic, looked odds-on favourite to score but the Englishman was denied by Young, who leapt to the Villians’ defence just in the nick of time.
OFF THE LINE! ?
