You reckon?! I think it will be a score draw, a difficult one to predict. Villa are playing better football than yourselves, however some debut appearances for you tonight might give you more edge than you would normally expect from an inconsitent Spurs team.

I know it's difficlut but surely MON has to drop either Reo or Petrov and play Milner from the start? I firmly believe with Young and Milner on the wings and Carew and Gabby up front, we will score gaols against anyone. Therefore, if we keep a clean sheet tonight, we will win the game. Also can't see Davies getting dropped, so think Cueller will start on the bench.
In MON we trust!

He will never drop Nige and I can see him playing in goal once he has proved inadequate in all other positions that he is tried in.
