A huge game for both sides. If Spurs lose, it’s our worst ever start to a Premier League campaign. If Villa lose, it would be their worst start for five years.
Croatian defender Vedran Corluka and Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko could both make their debuts for Tottenham.
Carlos Cuellar could be in line for his Aston Villa debut after recovering from a calf problem.
Craig Gardner is expected to fit but Steve Sidwell is likely to be out.
Head To Head
Villa really do struggle at the Lane and have not won in their last eight visits.
Spurs have taken one point from their first three games of the season but it was an impressive one, away to Chelsea.
Tottenham have been victorious in only one of their last ten Premier League matches.
Villa have lost just one of their seven league and cup games this season but have only won one game from their last six in the league.
This one could well see goals galore. Both teams know a point isn’t a lot of good, especially Spurs. I’d expect Tottenham to go for a very attacking formation from the off and hope to put the game to bed early. Let’s hope for an quick goal because if we get to half time 0-0 or 0-1, I’d not fancy our chances.
A bit speculative but Tottenham to win 4-3 @100/1 generally
Tottenham to be winning at Half Time and Full Time @9/4 generally
