Aston Villa v Tottenham: match preview

Tottenham have a formidable record at Villa Park – they have not been beaten on their last nine visits and they have won their last five away trips at Villa with a combined scored of 14-1. How they would love for that trend to continue on Sunday. Back-to-back wins have reignited Tottenham’s hopes of a top-four finish but Villa are on the right side of the dotted line – just – and have developed a habit for unexpected wins at just the right time.
