Team News

  • After an embarrassing result against Chelsea last time out, recording their biggest defeat in Premier League history by losing 8-0, Paul Lambert is likely to make a number of changes.
  • The Villa manager will hope to have captain Ron Vlaar back available after the makeshift backline was found wanting at Stamford Bridge.
  • Elsewhere there could be room for the likes of Ireland, Delph, El Ahmadi and Bennett.
  • Benoit Assou-Ekotto has returned to training but won't be rushed back after a lengthy spell out, while Scott Parker made his return to first team action from the bench against Stoke.
  • Defoe and Adebayor may be given a chance to continue up front together with Dempsey a doubt, though Sigurdsson will also hope to feature.
  • At the back Michael Dawson should keep his place ahead of Gallas at the back, with Lloris continuing in goal.


  • Aston Villa haven't beaten Tottenham in 8 attempts and Paul Lambert would be happy to bounce back from humiliation last week with a well earned point.
  • However, with such a young squad the drubbing at Chelsea will surely effect the home side and Tottenham will look to profit from any vulnerability Villa may show.
  • The home fans will want to get this game out of the way after a very tough Christmas period in terms of fixtures so may not hold out much hope on Boxing Day.
