Following their emphatic 9-1 victory over Wigan last weekend, Spurs will be keen to capitalise on current form in Saturday's Aston Villa - Tottenham Hotspur football league match.
Leading Tottenham and Premier League goal scorer Jermaine Defoe is looking to be a dominant force up front and continue his form of last week. Netting 5 goals against hapless Wigan brought his season's tally to 11 altogether.
At the other end of the pitch, the Spurs back four looked solid and this weekend will be looking to shut out Villa's top scorer Gabriel Agbonlahor, as they seek to widen the gap between fourth and fifth place.
Aaron Lennon is expected to take his place in the starting eleven for this Aston Villa vs Tottenham meeting, after his incredble performance last weekend, in which he tallied three assists and one goal for himself.

Honours were even last season, with the Aston Villa - Tottenham match at Villa Park ending in a 2-1 Spurs victory, whilst the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane went Villa's way with the same scoreline.
If Spurs continue with the mentality they had against Wigan, Villa are in for a difficult 90 minutes.
Tottenham will hoping for an easy win over Villa, as doing so could allow them to overtake neighbouring rivals Arsenal, who are currently in third spot on equal points and face a difficult challenge against Chelsea on the weekend.
This is an eagerly awaited clash, and Spurs may nick it by a goal or two on current form. However, Villa will be intent on knocking them off their pedestal and so we should be in for a tight clash.
