Aston Villa Captain Tyrone Mings Misses The Team Bus After Loss To Tottenham

Aston Villa captain Tyrone Mings missed the team bus home after his side's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham this afternoon.

The defender was filmed waiting outside The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a suitcase, desperately trying to work out where his teammates had gone and how he could get back to the West Midlands.

Italy's assistant coach Gianluca Vialli nearly suffered a similar fate during the summer, with the former Chelsea man seen chasing after The Azzurri's bus as they headed to London for the Euro 2020 Final.

Mings' mistake might turn out to be a blessing in disguise, as the journey back from North London won't be The Villains' happiest of the season.

Goals from Pierre Højbjerg and a Matt Targett own goal cancelled out a strike by Ollie Watkins to give Spurs their first league win in three matches, a result that Villa boss Dean Smith wasn't pleased with.

"I feel like it got away from us," he told BBC Sport. "It's a disappointment. I didn't think there was too much between the teams.

"The difference was that they had the outstanding player on the pitch, which was Son [Heung-min]. He was brilliant.

"We started both halves well. There was a 10-minute spell in the first half where we looked a bit stressed, but we covered that. Second half we looked better and stretched play a lot quicker and got our rewards.

"We huffed and puffed after that but there wasn't much in the game. We had some good moments in the penalty box without them turning into really good chances. It just wasn't to be today."

The result leaves Mings and Villa in 10th place in the Premier League table. Providing Mings managed to make it back to B6 6HE, he'll be wearing claret and blue next against Wolves on Saturday 16th October.
