The midfielder got the assist for the Cottagers’ 86th minute winner, having gone close himself a few minutes beforehand, as Aston Villa were put to the sword 2-1 on Saturday.

Elsewhere in the top flight, Jake Livermore played 90 minutes for Hull City as they triumphed 1-0 against Swansea City.

Tom Carroll, playing for Queens Park Rangers alongside Spurs colleague Benoit Assou-Ekotto, set up his side’s goal at Bournemouth with a perfectly-weighted pass – but it wasn’t sufficient to prevent the R’s from slipping to a 2-1 defeat in the Championship.

Jon Obika also saw action in the same division, coming on as an 82nd minute substitute for Charlton Athletic in their 1-0 reverse against Reading. He also stepped off the bench last Tuesday night as the Addicks won 1-0 at Leeds United.

Alex Pritchard returned to action for Swindon Town in League One, stepping off the bench at half-time as his side chased the game at Carlisle United. Unfortunately for the Robins, though, they were unable to find the target and Carlisle claimed a 1-0 win.

In League Two, Shaq Coulthirst played 85 minutes for Torquay United against Scunthorpe United. His side lost 1-0 and finished the game with 10 men.

In Spain, Yago Falque helped Rayo Vallecano beat Celta Vigo 3-0 while, in Portugal, Cristian Ceballos played 68 minutes for FC Arouca in their 1-0 loss at Maritimo.
