CONFIRMED: Tottenham Hotspur & Aston Villa line-ups

Here is how Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa will line up for this afternoon’s match at White Hart Lane...

Tottenham Hotspur starting XI: Lloris; Naughton, Chiriches, Dawson, Rose; Sandro; Sigurdsson, Paulinho, Eriksen; Adebayor, Kane.

Subs: Friedel, Fryers, Veljkovic, Bentaleb, Capoue, Pritchard, Soldado.

Aston Villa starting XI: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Baker, Bertrand, Bacuna, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, Bowery, Agbonlahor.

Subs: Steer, Sylla, Holt, Robinson, Grealish, Clark, El Ahmadi.

Tottenham will be looking to secure their sixth place finish in the Premier League with a result over Aston Villa today.

Spurs are currently three points clear of Manchester United, meaning just one point would result in them finishing above the Red Devils this season.

It's been a disappointing campaign for Tim Sherwood's side after huge expectations entering the season, but they can end it on a high today with three points over Paul Lambert's struggling Villa.

Before their win over Hull last weekend, Villa had lost seven games in a row and were hurtling towards the relegation zone, but now sit five points clear as Lambert looks to cling on to his job this summer.

But with just one away win in the league in 2014, the odds on a Villa win don't look good with Sherwood aiming to prove that he is the right man to keep the job permanently in North London despite speculation linking Frank de Boer with a move from Ajax.
