Cristian Romero serves the second of  a three game ban, whilst Yves Bissouma is also banned due to an accumulation of bookings.

James Maddison is injured and there is some doubt over Destiny Udogie who missed the international break.

Matty Cash pulled out of international duty, but is expected to be fine for Aston Villa.

Diogo Carlos is a doubt, but excluding long-term issues, the remainder of the squad is okay.

Expected starting XI’s
Tottenham (4-3-3): Vicario; Porro, Dier, Davies, Udogie; Hojbjerg, Sarr, Skipp; Kulusevski, Son, Johnson

Aston Villa (4-4-2): Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Torres, Digne; McGinn, Luiz, Kamara, Zaniolo; Diaby, Watkins


Result: Draw
Unlikely to be a lot between the two teams here, especially with Spurs’ numerous absentees

Correct Score: 2-2
Both teams to score looks a safe bet here

Anytime Goalscorer: Son Heung-Min
