Tottenham v Aston Villa predicted lineups and match preview

Tottenham Hotspur host Aston Villa this evening.

To be played on Monday 2nd November 2015 at 20:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London

Odds: Tottenham 2/5, Draw 7/2, Aston Villa 7/1

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking for a second win in a row as they take on Aston Villa at White Hart Lane this evening.

Mauricio Pochettino's side hammered Bournemouth 5-1 last weekend, with striker Harry Kane hitting an impressive hat-trick to get back on the goal trail after a slow start to the season.

Now, Kane and Spurs take on a Villa side who remain without a permanent manager having sacked ex-Tottenham player and manager Tim Sherwood last week.

Spurs can welcome back Ryan Mason, but he is unlikely to dislodge Dele Alli or Eric Dier in midfield, whilst Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela are likely to support Harry Kane in attack.

Meanwhile, Villa will be managed by interim boss Kevin MacDonald, but he could be without Micah Richards as the FA prepare a decision over a potential suspension for the defender.

Joleon Lescott should be fit to play, whilst MacDonald has a decision to make over whether to play Jordan Ayew, Rudy Gestede or both in attack.

A 4-2-3-1 system is preferred by Villa fans, as the likes of Carles Gil, Jack Grealish and Adama Traore can offer dynamic ability on the counter attack at White Hart Lane.
