22' 

SAVE! Martinez was alert there as free kick was taken quickly by Kane and he almost scores from just over the half way line

21' 

Another great run from Son, this time down the left flank. The South Korean weaves his way into the box, but his cut back is cleared away. Much better from Spurs

18' 

Half chance there for Spurs as Son drives forward and breaks into the box. Instead of cutting it back to Kane, he opts to shoot. His shot is blocked and comes back out to Skipp who clips the ball into the Kane who tries to get his head on it, but Martinez was there to pluck it out the air.

15' 

Kane has barely had a sniff of the ball in opening 15 minutes, he's looking veru isolated up top as Spurs attempt to keep possession of the ball

15' 

The threat is there from Spurs on the counter attack. The full backs know their roles and drive forward when they get the ball. But can they keep soaking the pressure from Villa?

12' 

A strong challenge there for Ramsey who slides through Skipp. But the referee waves play on

Referee Chris Kavanagh blows his whistle as get Spurs the game started

13:56 

Kick-off is less than five minutes away as both sides get ready to make their way out onto the pitch

13:50 

Having scored a hat-trick in midweek Kane will be desperate to get off the mark in Premier League and silence the doubters who think his head has been turned by a failed transfer to City in the Summer

13:45 

It's been a long time coming for Villa as not since December 2009 they produced three consecutive Premier League wins with three clean sheets. But it's worth noting that the second game of that sequence was a 1-0 win away at Man United. Could that be positive omen for the visitors?

13:40 

Danny Ings will be keen to continue his fine scoring form against Spurs. He has scored six goals in his last six appearances against Tottenham in all competitions, including four in his last three against them.

13:35 

The Spurs fans will be hoping for more from their team. Tottenham have lost their last three Premier League games by an aggregate score of 9-1. They last lost four in a row in the competition in November 2004 (a run of 6)

13:30 

Dean Smith wasn't buying into the crisis talk cantered around Nuno "This league is a tough league to play in. They won their first three games without conceding a goal and now all of a sudden they’re struggling defensively. I don’t buy into that, personally"

13:25 

In the build up today's game Nuno recognised Villa's strengths, but made it clear it will be down to his side to perform to get a result in front of their fans "We’ve analysed Villa as a whole but now, more than anything, we have to be focussed on ourselves and what we have to do to be better. We’re at home and we have to be strong.”

13:20 

While Villa will be keen to build on the momentum that saw them out play Manchester United at Old Trafford and earn a historic 1-0 victory. Hause’s late 88th minute winner meant they picked up a first away win this season.

13:15 

Nuno will be looking to prove that their Thursday night 5-1 win against NS Mura in the Europa Conference League wasn't a flash in the pan and bring an end to Spurs run of three consecutive Premier League defeats.
