Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur
2013/2014 English Premier League, Round 8
Date: 20.October.2013 - 17:00 CET - 11:00 AM EDT - 3:30 PM
Referee:‬ P. Dowd‎ 

Tottenham received a stern warning against complacency before the break as they saw West Ham take an unexpected 3-0 win at White Hart Lane. Despite this, the Hotspurs have enjoyed an impressive start to the 2013-2014 campaign under second year manager Andre Villas-Boas. The North London side have enjoyed the form of attacking midfielder Sigurdsson, especially in league play, and new English phenom Andros Townsend looks to build on his impressive display for England over the recent international break. The Hotspurs should be able to put Aston Villa on the backfoot early on and provide ample opportunities to find the back of the net. They've enjoyed ridiculous success against the Villains of late as Aston Villa haven't taken a single win since September of 2008 in any competition. Capoue, Kaboul, and Danny Rose will all be out. Aaron Lennon returns but will likely watch from the bench as Townsend gets his chance.

 Aston Villa are currently on an unbeaten run of three league games, having won at Norwich and memorably beaten Manchester City at Villa Park, before being held to a scoreless draw at Hull two weeks ago.
Villa are still without long term absentees Charles N’Zogbia and central defender Jores Okore, but there is better news on Christian Benteke. He was on the bench for Belgium against Wales this week, and if fit, will replace Libor Kozak.

Possible line-ups:
Aston Villa (4-2-3-1): Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Luna; Westwood, El Ahmadi; Weimann, Delph, Agbonlahor; Benteke.
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Naughton; Dembélé, Paulinho; Townsend, Eriksen, Sigurdsson; Soldado.
